The SBDC is a national program which is funded by various institutions, including the SBA. The SBDC provides a full spectrum of consulting services at no charge to its small business owner clients. The SBDC can advise business owners on how to obtain their share of the contracting pie. Karla indicated that contracting opportunities could be at the federal, state or city level and three hot industries are janitorial, professional services and construction.
To be awarded a contract her three key points were:
1.Understand your product/service and see if it lends itself to contracting
2. Make sure you have enough financing/capital avialable
3. Be persistence and network.
