Webinar - Learn about the factors for potential success that are evaluated when companies apply for the 8(a) Business Development Program
To help provide a level playing field for small businesses owned by socially and economically disadvantaged people or entities, the government limits competition for certain contracts to businesses that participate in the 8(a) Business Development program.
Disadvantaged businesses in the 8(a) program can:
Compete for set-aside and sole-source contracts in the program
Get a Business Opportunity Specialist to help navigate federal contracting
Form joint ventures with established businesses through the SBA's mentor-protégé program
Receive management and technical assistance, including business training, counseling, marketing assistance, and high-level executive development
You can compete for contract awards under multiple socio-economic programs, as they apply. Do you meet the profile to be the next certified 8(a) company? Tune into this webinar to learn what kind of small businesses and owners will be well qualified for certification. Information will be presented by Teri Taylor, SBA Business Opportunity Specialist.
