Small business development/ How to do business with local government

Brown bag working luncheons – 10:00 am till 2:00pm, Location: MB Train depot.

Many of the small businesses in our community have not yet developed the capacity to submit competitive proposals.  At the same time there are a number of organizations out there (e.g. SCORE, SBA, Chamber’s Small Business Council, etc.) that provide services designed to help small businesses to address the capacity issue.  Tim McCray minority affairs consultant and our City of MB. Purchasing Manager John Cowan are working to partner with these agencies to assist the small businesses by introducing them to greater opportunities, resources to develop greater capacity, and incentives.  The sum of these three parts is our small business initiative.
