Newly Updated For November 2019!
We took the best of our Government Masterclass Series and jam-packed it into
an amazing two-hour Express Masterclass just for YOU!
Did you know? The US federal government is the world’s largest buyer of products and services, contributing to an annual contracting marketplace of up to $500 billion dollars, with a goal of awarding 23% of those contracting dollars to small businesses. That’s potentially $100 billion in contracting dollars that should be awarded to small businesses just like yours! Currently, many agencies continue to fall short of that goal, leaving a great potential for YOUR small business to cash in on that opportunity. Let Anne and Joya show you how in this live webinar! Can’t make it live? No worries – this Master Class Express is recorded and all participants will receive a link to the recorded video.
