Training Alert: SBA’s Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) Tutorial

by Shonali Burke on April 8, 2011

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.

Check out this link for more info and to register (you can register up until April 14).

Remember, the webinar is on Thursday, April 14, from 3-4 pm ET/12-1 pm PT. Since it’s a virtual event, you can join from anywhere as long as you can get online.
