Speaker: Tina Georgieva

Topic:  Introduction of Women Owned Small Business Federal Contracting Program

So, you’re a woman and you run a business.  When compared to privately held firms, women-owned businesses employ 13 percent of the workforce and account for 11 percent of all business revenue.  However, in the pool of privately-held small businesses in this state, being a woman business owner actually has many advantages.  A decade in the making, in 2011, the federal government finally but in place the Federal Contracting Program for Women-Owned Small Businesses (WOSB).  The program authorizes federal government purchasing agencies to set aside a certain amount of federal contracts (at least 5 percent) for eligible women-owned small businesses and has already helped many women-owned businesses get an edge.  This presentation will show you how you can position yourself to benefit from it;  it will also show you the steps you need to take to make your company eligible to pursue new business opportunities by winning government contracts.
