ANNOUNCING: Meet & Certify Beaverton, the first one of 2018!

Hello, small business owners!

If you’ve been wondering about working with your local government agencies, but weren’t sure how to get started, then read on.  And if you’ve been wondering about getting your business COBID-certified, you won’t want to miss this!  We’re having the first Meet & Certify event of 2018, out in Beaverton!

What’s Meet & Certify?

Simply put, it’s an event where you can talk to government buyers and agency representatives from a wide variety of local and regional government agencies, nonprofits, and small business support groups (like me!).

We’ll have representatives from Metro, the City of Beaverton, ODOT, ORPIN, Business Oregon, Adalante Mujeres, the SBA, and more.  If you have questions or concerns about working with any of them, or what resources they can offer your business, well, now you can just ask.

Meet & Certify events are a great place to start building relationships, start getting your business COBID-certified, and meet the people you need to thrive.

I’m in!  Where and when is it?

This first Meet & Certify event is going to be on January 30th, from 3pm to 5pm.

It’s going to be held at BestHQ:  12745 SW Beaverton Rd, Beaverton OR 97005.
