Are You A Woman-Owned Small Business Interested In Selling To The Federal Government?

The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) Can Help!

To help provide a level playing field for women business owners in industries where they have been historically underrepresented, the federal government limits competition for certain contracts to businesses that participate in the women's contracting program. This free workshop, presented by a member of the local SBA team, will explain that program – known as the Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) Federal Contracting Certification Program -- and how that certification can help your small business grow.

This overview presentation covers:

  • The WOSB Program's purposes and benefits – i.e., why you should be interested
  • Considerations for deciding if certification is appropriate for you, including the industries/NAICS codes included in the program
  • Eligibility requirements for certification
  • How to become certified
  • Tips for getting the most out of the WOSB certification
