Early registration is open until Friday, March 13, at the discounted price of $65. After March 13, the cost will increase to $79. To register, or to view a full list of speakers and workshops, visit www.wyomingsbdc.org/grobiz.
The GRO-Biz Conference is the result of a partnership among U.S. Sen. Mike Enzi, the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), the Wyoming Procurement Technical Assistance Center, the Wyoming Business Council, the University of Wyoming and the Wyoming Small Business Development Center (SBDC) Network.
The conference focuses on providing training, resources and matchmaking opportunities to help Wyoming businesses expand their market to federal, state and local government agencies.
The conference will include opportunities to network at the event, and attendees will be able to choose from a large selection of workshops focused on government contracting, procurement website design, legal updates for small businesses and cybersecurity.
This year’s speakers include Adam Austin, a nationally recognized cybersecurity expert; Craig Carlson, Trihydro Corp. senior vice president; and Brent Owens, U.S. SBA procurement expert.
Experts from Wyoming’s vast Business Resource Network also will be on hand to help entrepreneurs take advantage of the numerous consultation services and technical assistance programs available to all Wyoming residents at no cost.
Every year, government agencies set aside millions of dollars to spend on products and services from Wyoming small businesses in every industry. Representatives from these agencies will be available for one-on-one meetings to discuss current and future opportunities.
