This 7-week program is designed to provide attendees a sound fundamental understanding about the process of doing business with government entities, including federal, state and local governments. Most large companies, particularly those who have state or federal incentives for expansion or relocation, also follow similar standards. By being prepared for doing business with government entities, small businesses increase the likelihood that they will be positioned to do business with big businesses, such as semiconductor manufacturing companies.
This program will take you through the steps from identifying opportunities to effective invoicing and accounting practices. It will touch on requirements that will be necessary for MWBE (Minority & Women-owned Business Enterprises) certifications, SEDI (Socially & Economically Disadvantaged Individual) businesses and why they are important. If you have a business that could potentially be doing business with the government or big businesses, then this series is for you.
These sessions will offer both an in-person* and virtual attendance option.
The course will be conducted by Empire APEX Accelerator and hosted by the Onondaga Community College Small Business Development Center. It is sponsored by NYSTEC.
Cost is $75 for the full series.
