Government Contracting Training Sessions – May 2021

May 5, 2021 - 05/26/2021

Presented as part of the AIM Higher Consortium

This series of four introductory workshops about contracting with the federal government is aimed at manufacturers and small businesses that may wish to explore selling products or services to federal agencies. The series is presented as part of the AIM Higher Consortium, a wide-ranging program funded by the Department of Defense with the goal of strengthening the defense supply chain in the State of West Virginia and the Greater Pittsburgh region of Southwest Pennsylvania. TechConnect West Virginia is proud to be a partner in this initiative.

AIM Higher focuses on the exploration and adoption of advanced manufacturing technology such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, robotics, additive manufacturing, cybersecurity, and more. AIM Higher exists to support small and medium manufacturers who are currently working in the Defense manufacturing supply chain or are actively pursuing opportunities in the DoD space.

Small manufacturers and businesses that are not part of the DoD supply chain can attend these virtual trainings to learn the basics about doing business with the government.

Melissa Loder, Senior Area Business Opportunity Specialist, West Virginia District Office, U.S. Small Business Administration, will present:
