Expand Your Business through Government Contracting & Subcontracting
The government (local, state, and federal) is one of the largest consumers of goods and services in the United States. The agencies and large companies that win the contracts must subcontract a percentage of that work to small businesses.
We will help you get started or enhance your opportunities through training, advising, and a Business Matchmaker event.
- Contracting training is offered on the first Friday of the month, September - May. See our calendar for upcoming topics. Join our newsletter to receive weekly updates on training topics and dates.our newsletter to receive weekly updates on training topics and dates.
- The Center offers one-on-one advising to help businesses begin the bidding process, improve/expand their bidding process, and to develop organizational and business relationships that may lead to future contracts.
- We partner with federal and state organizations to bring the dynamic CT Business Matchmaker Event to the University of Hartford campus every June. At the event, small businesses meet with prime contractors, educational institutions, and government agencies/municipalities to present their goods and services in a series of 10 minute one-on-one sessions.
