Doing Business With the Commonwealth Selling to the Commonwealth Calling All Small Business Owners and Entrepreneurs The Commonwealth of Virginia spends Billions of dollars on goods and services each year. Goods and services that you probably sell! Ask yourself, “Am I getting my share?” If your answer is “No”, then this free workshop is for you. EVa, the Commonwealth’s electronic procurement portal, is one of the most powerful market research tools when selling to any state agency (including public colleges and universities). EVa can help you identify:
How do I find solicitations to bid on?
Which state agencies buy what I sell?
How much do they pay for what I sell?
Who are my competitors / potential collaborators?
Which of my competitors are winning these bids?
The Commonwealth has a set-aside program that encourages state agencies to purchase goods and services from small businesses like yours. At this workshop, you’ll learn about SWaM and Micro business certifications and how they can give you a competitive advantage in the marketplace. If you plan to grow your business with the Commonwealth (remember Virginia spends Billions each year), you need to attend this “Selling to the Commonwealth” workshop! On the Agenda:
