Developing a Capability Statement – Webinar @ CPCC Small Business Center
Sep 29 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Many are interested in getting certified to do business with local, state and federal government as well as major corporations. Once certified, most small, minority and women-owned businesses do not have the tool (s) to effectively market to City, County, State and Federal representatives, Supplier Diversity Directors and prime contractors. The Capability Statement is a marketing tool that serves as a “door opener” in relationship building with decision makers and serves as the company’s “leave behind” at the conclusion of a meeting. Lain Consulting LLC, a Minority and Women-Owned Business Enterprise and Industry Leader in government contracting, will share the 5 elements of an effective capability statement and review the do’s and don’t s when developing your capability statements. Find out what you need to know to position your company for more contracting opportunities.

This is the third session of the Government Contracting Series
