Women in Government Contracting Symposium
March 21 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm CDTFree
Each year, the Federal government aims to award at least 3% of all contracting dollars to certified Women-Owned Small Businesses (WOSB). In 2022, the Federal government spent over $650 Billion in total contract awards. That means at least $19.5 Billion dollars to Women-Owned Small Businesses in the U.S. for government contracts. And that doesn’t take into account all of the contracts awarded by state and local government agencies. The government is a lucrative market to add to your business portfolio – so join the Nebraska APEX Accelerator and the U.S. Small Business Administration to learn more about the government contracting market and meet with others in the industry.
