The SBTDC’s PTAC team has arranged for eight “Business Development Seminars” across the state. The educational seminars are designed to help businesses understand the SBA’s Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) and Economically Disadvantaged Women-Owned Small Business (EDWOSB) program and how businesses can compete for government contracts and grow their business. The WOSB contracting program allows federal agencies to offer WOSB set aside contracts to woman business owners.
Each venue will cover a variety of subjects, like EXPORTING, MARKETING, FINANCING and successful woman owned small business panels. We encourage participation from any and all businesses regardless of their designation.
Here are the dates and locations of the seminars:
- September 9 Greenville
- September 24 Charlotte
- September 26 Pembroke
- October 1 TRIAD (Greensboro/Winston-Salem)
- October 8 Asheville
- October 9 Hickory
