Winning Federal Contracts - A Great Business Opportunity, or a Nightmare?

This seminar will focus on how business-to-government (B2G) is different from business-to-business (B2B), and what the opportunities and risks are for a wide variety of New Hampshire businesses.

Each year, hundreds of New Hampshire companies receive between $1.5 - $2 billion dollars in federal contracts alone, and many hundreds of millions more in state and local contracts. New Hampshire small businesses are particularly successful with federal contracts – NH is #7 in the US and #1 in the northeast in per capita federal small business contracts.

You will come away from this session with a clearer understanding of:
• What kinds of opportunities exist, and can you make money?
• What are the requirements to be eligible?
• How you can establish competitive advantages;
• How to make a sound decision about whether government contracting is for you;
• What resources are available to help you win contracts and avoid pitfalls.

Workshops will be held from 9:00 AM to 11:30 AM for the following dates and locations. There is no cost to attend, however registration is required.
