This is a free event.

The 8(a) Business Development Program is designed to help your business grow. Free, intensive training and the chance for non-competitive federal contracts are two of the immediate benefits. Firms accepted in the program receive 9-year business development training from SBA specialists and resources. Firms owned by socially and economically disadvantaged individuals that have been in business for at least two years and have a potential for success are eligible. Tribally owned firms are also eligible. Come learn more! Is your business located in a HUBZone? Historically Underutilized Business Zones provide contracting advantages to those businesses residing in them. Federal agencies are required to award a certain percentage of contracts to HUBZone firms. Learn about the eligibility requirements and how a HUBZone certification could provide the contracting advantage you are looking for!
