I walked away from my first Annual Conference making friends for life. A must attend if you want to be the first to experience the next level of performance accessible to your business.”

Teaming and Diversity of Sourcing Business Avenues
Sustainability of Small Businesses
Of all firms, small businesses and women-owned small businesses are particularly prone to financial struggle, which often times leads to the demise of these ventures. With this reality and the inescapable competition from large firms, small companies have to be smart and resourceful if they are to succeed.
Last year, our groundbreaking session discussed access to capital opportunities, the power of teaming your small business with others, and ways to secure diverse business avenues for your company. Just because your company is small doesn’t mean you can’t win big.
Women-Owned Business Certification
Access to Capital
Last year, our resource partners delivered an update on the benefits and power in women-owned business certification. From leveraging your firm’s appeal in the government contracting field to increasing your company’s value and bottom-line profits, attendees learned to capitalize on critical business opportunities.
Why get certified? Do I qualify? Where do I start? What’s the return? Several entities are actively looking for women-owned businesses
- FALSE: There is no value in women-owned business certification.
- TRUE: Diverse spend opportunities are being lost because the government and other entities cannot locate enough women-owned businesses.

Women-Owned Contracting Opportunities
A variety of agencies with enormous responsibilities and projects in motion, from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to the Small Business Administration (SBA), beckon the assistance of diverse independent contractors from several industries.
These entities possess contracts and set-asides for women-owned small business and small businesses within several designations. With the ever-growing diversity and inclusion (D&I) movement, a rising number of agencies are dedicating themselves to increasing the utilization of small businesses in the contracting arena.
As the Small Business Administration (SBA) reveals in the Scorecard Summary for fiscal year 2015, HUD awarded over $360 million in contracts to women-owned small businesses (WOSB). This is just one agency dedicated to working with WOSB in the contracting arena.
These contracts, potentially worth millions of dollars, could be pivotal for your business. If you prepare yourself, you could be the next recipient of a million-dollar contract.
