UW SBDC Hosts HUBZone Workshop in Riverton May 4

April 6, 2017

Every year, the federal government spends millions of dollars in Wyoming. For small-business owners interested in selling their products and services to the federal government, the Wyoming Small Business Development Center (SBDC) is offering a workshop on the subject.

Small-business owners can learn how to become a HUBZone-designated firm that can benefit them, and receive an introduction to free resources that will assist them in navigating the federal procurement process. This workshop, titled “HUBZone and Matchmaking Event,” is scheduled Thursday, May 4, 2-4:30 p.m. in the Community Room of the Fremont County Library, 1330 W. Park Ave., in Riverton.

The SBDC is a partnership among the University of Wyoming, the Wyoming Business Council and the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). The SBDC focuses on educating small-business owners and potential owners on how to successfully start and operate small businesses. The SBDC’s main office is located at UW.

The Wyoming District Office of the U.S. SBA, the Wyoming Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC), Native American Procurement Technical Assistance Center, U.S. Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management and F.E. Warren Air Force Base have teamed up to arrange a networking event. Participants will have the opportunity to meet individually with these agencies to discuss the supplies and services they buy and understand how they purchase them.

“There will be a number of purchasing representatives from various government agencies at the event, and they are interested in networking with participants to discuss their buying needs and practices,” says Cindy Beth Unger, business adviser for the Wyoming SBDC. “This may be a great opportunity for some of our small businesses to approach that market.”

The program is free of charge, but participants must register at

Reasonable accommodations for persons with disabilities will be made, if requested at least two weeks in advance. For further information, call Brett Housholder at (307) 234-3203 or email him at
