Free Webinar for Female Owned Businesses

As a female entrepreneur and supporter of small business, I wanted to share this important notice to fellow female business owners looking to sell to the U.S. government.

American Express OPEN, in partnership with Women Impacting Public Policy (WIPP), is offering a free, one-hour tutorial from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Wednesday (May 25), to help women business owners participate in, compete for and win federal contracts.

There are about $27 billion in contracts set aside specifically for women business owners and there are as many a 684,000 women-owned businesses that could potentially benefit from the program, American Express OPEN and WIPP said.

The webinar is part of the Give Me 5 Program, a national program created by American Express OPEN and WIPP to help women business owners sell to the U.S. government.

Business owners who are interested in joining the Webinar should visit http://www.wipp.org/, see the Calendar of Events on left hand column, and click on Give Me 5 131: Using your WOSB Certification to Win Contracts.
