Collin SBDC: SCORE: SBA Certification Matrix & Selling to the Government (Webinar)
Aug 16 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

The U.S. Census Bureau predicts that by 2050, 55 percent of the population will be composed of minorities. This means that our small businesses will be more diverse, and inclusion will be a critical component of business. The federal government and many corporations remain committed to do the right thing through greater diversity and inclusion of suppliers. This workshop explores certifications at the corporate, federal, state, and local government levels. You will also learn how to utilize them to improve your bottom line.
