Did you know there is roughly $27 billion in contracts set aside specifically for women business owners? Thanks to the Small Business Administration’s Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) Program, which went into effect on February 4, women business owners have a greater chance to win government contracts. In fact, the Kauffman-RAND Institute for Entrepreneurship Public Policy estimates that the program could benefit approximately 684,000 of these companies.
American Express OPEN and Women Impacting Public Policy (WIPP) are offering a free, one-hour tutorial on Wednesday, June 29 to teach entrepreneurs how to market their companies to government agencies.
This educational webinar is part of the Give Me 5 program, a national initiative created by American Express OPEN and WIPP to help women business owners get a leg up on selling to the world’s largest customer: the U.S. government. This online event will be hosted by Lourdes Martin-Rosa, President, Government Business Solutions and American Express OPEN Advisor on Government Contracts.
Date: Wednesday, June 29, 2011
Time: 3-4pm ET/ 12-1pm ET
