Teaching Women Business Owners How to Pitch to the Federal Government

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 next 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.

Additional information can be found below:
Date: Wednesday, June 29, 2011
Time: 3-4pm EST/ 12-1pm EST
Where: Virtual

Business owners who are interested in registering for the Webinar should visit: http://www.wipp.org/events/event_details.asp?id=165187.   Additional resources for business owners can be found on www.openforum.com/governmentcontracts.

  1. Hi,

    Budget advisers are warning about the financial crisis by the loans, which Group is pitching as a way to avoid having your eftpos card declined at the supermarket. You should have detail knowledge about your background that makes you the right person to make this business a market leade. Thanks a lot.

  2. Another great move, I am hoping to hear more activities that will help women business owners.
