Securing government contracts can help build or support your business, even if you are located in a rural or small town area.
Jean Warner, Oklahoma Women’s Network, found some local training in Oklahoma, at Rose State College. That’s right across the street from Tinker Air Force Base. Here’s the brochure and registration form. (Warner credits the State Chamber with the link.)
Locally, we also have a government contracts specialist who consults, at no charge, with small businesses. The program is called Bid Assistance.
Look around your area for training and support. If you find ideas worth sharing, share them here!
