The Georgia District Office of the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), along with the Office of Minority Development of the University of Georgia’s Small Business Development Center, is presenting a three-hour seminar on the 8(a) certification process on Thursday, January 15, 2015 in Atlanta.
The SBA’s 8(a) Business Development program is a part of the federal government’s effort to promote equal business access for socially and economically disadvantaged individuals, including Black Americans, Hispanic Americans, Native Americans, Asian Pacific Americans, subcontinent Asian Americans, and in in some cases, women business owners. Companies with an 8(a) certification can benefit from the wide-range of services offered including government contracting opportunities, access to capital, management and technical assistance, and more.
The Jan. 15th seminar is being held at the Georgia District office of the SBA, 233 Peachtree Street, Suite 1900, Peachtree Center – Harris Tower, Atlanta, GA, 30303.
