Thanks to the Small Business Association’s Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) Program, which went into effect on February 4th, women business owners have a greater chance to win government contracts; 684,000 women-owned businesses could potentially benefit.
(Male-owned businesses are not exempt; they can take part by partnering with women-owned businesses.)
To help business owners take advantage of this growth opportunity, American Express OPEN and Women Impacting Public Policy (WIPP) are offering a free, one-hour tutorial on Thursday, April 14.
This session will provide further details on eligibility requirements and contract set-asides, and the step-by-step requirements for certification, including:
- WOSB and EDWOSB certification requirements
- Submitting documents to the SBA’s WOSB program repository
- Update on 3rd Party certifications
This educational webinar is part of the Give Me 5 program, a national program 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.
