WEBINAR for 8m/edWOSB Program 

“Prepare your business to win BIG in government contracting with the new 8(m)/edWOSB Certification Program”

The SBA released their Final Rule on the WOSB program to include a new certification called edWOSB (ed = economically disadvantaged) effective February 2011.  This program enhances the previous WOSB program, which was very limited in supporting women business owners.  Important to the program's success is a change made in the Small Business Jobs Act of 2010, which restored "parity" among all the SBA small business contracting programs. Additionally, find out how the new Mentor Protégé program that was opened up for edWOSB/SDVOSB/HUB Zone can change how you do business with the government.

WHY PARTICIPATE IN THE PROGRAM?

There is a limited window to prepare your company and gain an edge over your competitors.  This new program was launched only a few years ago.  Become a part of  the growing WOSB Program (8m/edWOSB Certification).
