Executive Briefing: Becoming a Small Business Partner of Choice - Views from SBA and Industry

Valo Park
7950 Jones Branch Drive
McLean, VA 22101

Join us for this two part program as we learn how to make the budget work for you as a small business. First, the SBA will discuss acquisition trends in the small business community, changing rules and regulations, and tools available to you to access SBA customer funding. Then, we will hear from a panel of large and medium-sized systems integrators as they discuss how they build relationships with the small business community and meet SBA goals. They will also highlight key capabilities and expertise they look for in small business partners. At the conclusion of the event, attendees will have the opportunity to network and make connections.
