Are you interested in selling your goods and services to the Commonwealth of Virginia and ready to take advantage of the powerful marketing tools available to accomplish this goal?
Come to our class and learn from an expert about free eVA (Virginia's online, electronic procurement system) and SWaM (Small, Women-owned, and Minority-owned Business) certifications and navigating Virginia's purchasing process.
During this class, our instructor will explain the benefits of the small business set-aside preference program, which is in place for Virginia's procurement agency and many local government procurement agencies as well. The presentation also highlights how to position a start-up or emerging small business to obtain contracts with state or local governments using eVA as their procurement portal. Other topics include the application process for SWaM and Micro Business certifications as well as the process to become an eVA registered vendor.
If you have already started the application process but would like some additional assistance, please call Lynda at the CV SBDC offices to schedule a one-on-one appointment with our instructor after the workshop.
