UW and Wyoming SBDC Network to Host HUBZone Workshop in Rawlins March 26

Small-business owners can learn how to obtain federal contract dollars through becoming HUBZone-certified companies Tuesday, March 26.

Janean Forsyth and Deb Farris will present a Wyoming Small Business Development Center (SBDC) Network workshop titled “HUBZone Opportunity Workshop: Carbon County” from noon-1 p.m. at the Business Innovation Hub, located at 116 14th St. in Rawlins. To register, go here. Registration is free.

The Wyoming SBDC Network offers business expertise to help Wyoming residents think about, launch, grow, reinvent or exit their business. The Wyoming SBDC Network is hosted by the University of Wyoming with state funds from the Wyoming Business Council and funded, in part, through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA).

The U.S. government is the largest customer in the world. It buys all types of products and services -- in both large and small quantities. Government contracts are a tremendous financial opportunity for small businesses, and the government works to make sure small businesses get at least 23 percent of all federal contracting dollars.

Carbon County is a governor-designated HUBZone for 2024. The HUBZone program provides federal contracting advantages to qualified HUBZone small businesses. Small-business owners can learn more about the program during the workshop and whether their businesses will qualify to potentially obtain an advantage in government contracting.

Forsyth is the Wyoming APEX Accelerator program manager, and Farris is deputy district director of the U.S. SBA for the Wyoming district office.
