As part of National Small Business Week, the Pace University Small Business Development Center (SBDC) partnered with the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) to host an engaging workshop on government procurement strategies. Lead presenter Jennifer Jackson, a Supervisory Economic Development Specialist at the SBA, engaged small business entrepreneurs in a presentation and discussion of the systems involved in government contracting, the various programs and contracting support offered by the SBA, as well as how to prepare/bid on opportunities relevant to the business’ products or services. Attendees were additionally given insight on how to market their firms, craft an effective capability statement, and available resources such as the Pace SBDC to strengthen their proposals. During and after the presentation, attendees had the opportunity to ask questions pertaining to their own businesses.
