Capital Growth Session II: Best Practices in Securing Government Contracts
January 29 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 pm CST
Capital access and growth are long-standing pain points of minority-owned businesses across the nation and in the Greater New Orleans (GNO) region. Minority-owned businesses, consequentially, have been disproportionately affected during the current economic downturn. As such, Greater New Orleans, Inc. (GNO, Inc.) and the Urban League of Louisiana (ULLA) are hosting a series of virtual discussions to dissect opportunities for minority-owned small businesses to increase their ability to access capital and to create viable, sustainable ventures that create generational wealth.
Government contracts can yield long-term, high-dollar opportunities. Gaining the skills and tools necessary to secure such contracts can be critical to expanding and scaling a business, particularly in the midst of a global pandemic. This discussion will detail opportunities for minority-owned small businesses to bid on available local, state and federal procurement contracts.
