Speed Networking Puts A New Twist On GSA’s Small Business Day Fair
The Rocky Mountain Region US General Services Administration hosted a half-day Small Business Day Fair at the Denver Federal Center for 30 small business owners in the Denver-metro area on Wednesday, February 5, 2014.
“We look forward to expanding and strengthening of our ties with local small businesses,” said Pennie Estrada, GSA Rocky Mountain Regional Small Business Utilization Center Director “It’s by working together that we can accomplish more for the small businesses and communities we serve.”
The event gave small business owners the opportunity to learn to navigate doing business with GSA and to gain new federal agency business contacts. Business owners had a chance to grow their network, pitch their product or service, and gain increased insight into landing a contract with the federal government.
As part of the activities, The Colorado Procurement Technical Assistance Center and the Small Business Administration joined GSA in a fast and fun paced speed networking session that quickly delivered answers and contacts.
GSA takes pride in working closely with local communities and being a partner to the businesses in our six-state area of Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, Montana, North Dakota and South Dakota. It is a continued priority and honor to work with small and minority businesses, ensuring them the best possible opportunity to provide goods and services to their clientele, including the federal government. As we seek to fulfill GSA’s objectives of increased efficiency, sustainability and transparency in government, we understand that enhanced communication between GSA and small businesses is essential.
GSA plans to host one of these half-day sessions twice a year in the Denver-metro area. If businesses are interested in participating in the next opportunity, they should reach out to the Small Business Utilization Center for more information.
