Webinar 06-08-11: Facts about the new Woman Owned Small Business Program (edWOSB/8m) Certification

“Prepare your business to win BIG in government contracting with the new 8(m)/edWOSB Certification Program”

The SBA released their Final Rule on the WOSB program to include a new certification called edWOSB (ed = economically disadvantaged) effective February 2011.  This new program enhances the previous WOSB program which was very limited in supporting women business owners.  Important to the program's success is a change made in the Small Business Jobs Act of 2010, which restored "parity" among all the SBA small business contracting programs.  Also, find out how the new Mentor Protégé program which was opened up for edWOSB/SDVOSB/HUB Zone can change how you do business with the government.


There is a limited window to prepare your company to gain a competitive edge over your competitors.  The new program is launched on February 4, 2011.  Be one of the first businesses to get into the new WOSB Program (8m/edWOSB Certification).

Position your company to capitalize on these opportunities.

Join us on a webinar to learn about these exciting changes.
