The Charlotte ChallengeHER event will educate women entrepreneurs about the Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) Federal Contract Program and provide them with resources and knowledge to help grow their businesses through federal contracting. The event is designed to bring more women-owned firms into the federal government’s supply chain and to provide an avenue for government agencies to meet qualified women-owned contractors.
The WOSB contracting program allows federal agencies to offer WOSB set aside contracts to women business owners represented in 83 NAICS codes, who are 51% owned, controlled and primarily managed by one or more women who are U.S. citizens and managed day-to-day operations and long term decisions.
Challenge HER is joint initiative from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), American Express OPEN, the small business division of the financial services company and Women Impacting Public Policy (WIPP).
