The prospects of doing business with government agencies and military operations can be intimidating and overwhelming, particularly for small businesses. However, we have assembled a panel of speakers that will guide you through the process, and provide you with the contacts and tools you need to break through those mental barriers. Additionally, attendees will learn about programs specifically designed for small business and women, minority and veteran owned businesses.

Representatives from the SBA and the NJ Small Business Development Center will discuss ways to identify opportunities in the federal market, how to prepare to take advantage of those opportunities and the resources available to assist in the process. Key individuals from Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst will be providing information to businesses about the opportunities of securing a portion of the millions of dollars in military and public work projects that will be sought by their procurement teams.
