    Have you ever wondered what it takes to sell your products or services to the federal government? Perhaps you've attended a workshop on doing business with the government at some point in the past. Maybe you even heard about the billions of dollars the U.S. Government spends every year buying goods and services from entrepreneurs just like you.

    At this week’s Essence Festival, MBDA is offering panels and technical assistance to help demystify this process.  At our Leap. Run. Grow slate of business development sessions, I’m eager to connect with emerging and established entrepreneurs. The panel I am moderating on July 1 is focused on government contracts, and it is titled, “Are You Ready to Do Business with the Federal Government?”

    Digital ResourcesOn October 1 the Office of Small Business Utilization (OSBU) updated their web resources with a more diagnostic approach to helping companies understand the steps to working with GSA.  www.GSA.gov/osbu takes the information that small businesses need and provides it in bite-sized pieces that are easy to process. The landing page provides a virtual door for each business in every step of the process!

    For example, if a company is new to the government they are encouraged to watch a series of short videos to help them determine if working with GSA is the right next step.  If the business has worked with the government before, they may only be looking to pursue and win business or maybe how to maintain and renew their contract.
