Expand Your Business Through Government Contracting

Entrepreneurial Center calendar

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 events.

  • Government contracting workshops are offered on the first Friday of the month, September - December and February - May. See our calendar for upcoming topics. 
  • In addition to training, the Entrepreneurial 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 Connecticut Business Matchmaker Event to the University of Hartford campus every June. At the event, small businesses meet with prime contractors, municipalities and government agencies to present their goods and services in a series of 10 minute one-on-one sessions.
