About the event
Federal, State and Local governments are often wonderful customers. Understanding the barriers to entry can seem steep. Here we will focus on how to navigate the waters of government procurement. Our initial focus will be federal government procurement as we drill down to local city and county buying. This workshop may also interest those simply curious about how their taxes are spent. Do you have to know someone or have a connection to be successful? We will discuss the process rather than any specific product or service. This workshop focuses on business owners who understand their own skillset. They may have an operating business that has shown profit and has multiple locations and employees, or they may be just considering opening a business. They bring knowledge of their own industry but lack the understanding of how the procurement and acquisitions process works. They WANT to, but not HOW.
