It’s no April Fool’s joke. The SBA and the North Central and JARI Procurement Technical Assistance Centers are making it possible for you to decide if diversifying your business through government contracting is right for you. We’ll cover the basics in just 15 minutes – all from the comfort of your own workspace.
It’s part of a round table E-Chat discussion series we’ve developed titled “Break for 15: Accelerate Your Business.” Listen in as a panel of experts converse about their government contracting experiences. Our first chat “Navigating the Federal Contracting Highway,” will be on April 12th from 11-11:15 a.m.. And, we’re even setting aside a few extra minutes for questions.
Attend this workshop to learn how SBA and our resource partners - SBDC, WBC, and SCORE - can give you a business advantage. We will focus on SBA’s Loan Programs and Services. Whether you are just getting started or you are an existing business ready to expand, we can help.
