Power Networking Breakfast: Five Ways to Build a Badass Brand

Join us and other women entrepreneurs for a free breakfast, networking, and a presentation by Pia Silva, Founder of Worstofall Design, called "Five Ways to Build a Badass Brand." 

Don't let a half-assed brand hold you back!

You're a passionate, motivated business owner. You started a business from scratch, people actually want to buy what you have to sell, and you've been successful so far... go you!

But let's face it, your company's image doesn't do justice to the quality of what you offer.  Your logo was designed for cheap, your website is hacked together and antiquated, and your business cards don't match anything else.

And deep down, you know you're better than that. You created something from nothing, and now you're growing! And as you expand, it's important to ask yourself if you're losing sales because your image isn't impressing your prospects.

If this sounds like you, or if you're not sure, come join us and find out five steps you can take to make your half-assed brand, bad-ass.

8(a) Certification Workshop

8(a) Certification Workshop

When: December 18, 2013
Where: The Entrepreneur Space, 36-46 37th Street, Long Island City, NY 11101
Time: 9:30am to 1:00pm
Cost: FREE

The 8(a) Business Development Program helps small, disadvantaged businesses compete in the marketplace. 

In order to help small, disadvantaged businesses compete in the marketplace, the SBA created the 8(a) Business Development Program. 

What is the 8(a) Business Development Program?

  • The 8(a) Business Development Program is a business assistance program for small disadvantaged businesses. The 8(a) Program offers a broad scope of assistance to firms that are owned and controlled at least 51% by socially and economically disadvantaged individuals.

  • The 8(a) Program is an essential instrument for helping socially and economically disadvantaged entrepreneurs gain access to the economic mainstream of American society. The program helps thousands of aspiring entrepreneurs to gain a foothold in government contracting.

  • Participation in the program is divided into two phases over nine years: a four-year developmental stage and a five-year transition stage.

Benefits of the Program

  • Participants can receive sole-source contracts, up to a ceiling of $4 million for goods and services and $6.5 million for manufacturing. While we help 8(a) firms build their competitive and institutional know-how, we also encourage you to participate in competitive acquisitions.

  • 8(a) firms are also able to form joint ventures and teams to bid on contracts. This enhances the ability of 8(a) firms to perform larger prime contracts and overcome the effects of contract bundling, the combining of two or more contracts together into one large contract. Also, see the Mentor-Protégé Program for more information on allowing starting 8(a) companies to learn the ropes from other more experienced businesses.
