Building New York 2012 Economic Development Summit
The Building New York 2012 Economic Development Summit is aligned with New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo’s directive to build capacity and increase contract awards to NYS-certified MWBEs.
President Obama has made small business growth and job creation top priorities in 2012. This unique conference brings together qualified Minority, Women-Owned and Disadvantaged Business Enterprises to learn about New York State and Federal procurement opportunities.
New contracts for small business create new jobs and retain existing ones.

and Small Business Owners.
Who Should Attend?
- Construction related firms from Puerto Rico that can handle multi-million dollar bids and can demonstrate major projects they have done in PR for site checks.
