The free ChallengeHER Nashville event will educate attendees on growth opportunities in government contracting as well as how to participate in the U.S. Small Business Administration’s (SBA) Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) Federal Contract program. Additionally, business owners can sign up to participate in Contract Connections – one-on-one meetings with procurement officials, government buyers and large prime contractors.
