Government contracts can offer significant opportunities for small businesses, but selling to the government requires a very different approach than selling to the commercial sector. Join us and learn how you can leverage small business certifications to diversify your revenue stream and improve your bottom line. A Business Opportunity Specialist with the SBA Dallas/Fort Worth District Office will facilitate the workshop and will be available to answer specific questions on the different certification processes. If you have questions, please contact us via email at DFWDO.Email@sba.gov. As a courtesy, if you register and are unable to attend the class, please email DFWDO.Email@sba.gov prior to the class so that we can release a ticket to others who may be on the waiting list.
