Did you know government agencies purchase almost everything – from custodial, construction, and IT, to pencils, pet food, and even goats for grazing?

Join us to discover the opportunities and requirements of doing business with the government, including cities, counties, transportation agencies, education districts, states, and the federal government. We’ll help you determine if selling to the government is right for you, and teach you the basics of how to get started and be successful. 

This free in-person workshop will give you a run-down of what you need to know and how you can prepare for success in the government marketplace. From “am I ready?” to submitting your first proposal, this workshop will set you on the path towards winning contracts with local, state, and federal agencies.
