Have you ever wondered what it takes to do business with the federal government as a small business owner? Join SBA St. Louis Business Opportunity Specialist Gary Alexander and Outreach & Marketing Specialist Nicki Massie to learn how government contracting works and how the 8(a) Business Development Program or HUBZone certification could boost your business.

Small businesses are always searching for new and profitable markets. The US government is the LARGEST single purchaser of goods and services in the world. With the recent passage of the infrastructure bill, NOW is the perfect time to explore federal contracting.

This workshop is geared toward small businesses in Eastern Missouri who are interested in government contracting.
