Unlock Government Contracts for Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB)

A Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) is a type of business at least 51% owned by one or more women. Governments and organizations offer specific certifications and programs to support and promote Women-Owned Businesses. 

As a Woman Owned Small Business you may be looking forward to bidding on or winning government contracts. We know about the great opportunities that government contracts hold for small businesses. These government contracts encompass a wide range of sectors, from technology and construction to professional services and supplies. 

By successfully tapping into these contracts, small businesses can access a stable client base, establish long-term partnerships, and leverage their expertise to contribute meaningfully to various public projects.

If you´re a WOSB and you´re looking forward to winning government contracts, you need to be  WOSB certified. 

These certifications provide access to government contracts, funding opportunities, networking events, and resources tailored to women entrepreneurs.

So, is your small business missing out on the opportunity to secure valuable government contracts? If so, it’s time to explore the potential that Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) certification holds.

Becoming Certified: The Path to Success in the Federal Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) Program

Government contracts provide a tailored framework to empower and uplift Women-Owned Small Businesses by offering preferential treatment, support, and specialized opportunities that can boost growth and success.

Apart from having many government agencies actively seek WOSBs to fulfill their procurement goals, WOSBs also receive dedicated support, training, and resources from the Small Business Administration (SBA) and other entities to enhance visibility and credibility while opening doors to larger corporate partnerships and broader market access.

FGA is like having an outsourced back-office that's always sourcing contracts and giving you a better chance at winning them. It's a drop in the bucket to pay them if it helps me win more contracts, and I do win more with them than without!

FGA has been super helpful. We are a new business that just started this year and they worked with us to help us secure our first contact with the government. Their platform is extremely helpful because it consolidates every opportunity in one space and allows you to find the right project for your business.

These guys have become my go-to for advice on anything involving federal contracts. It can be a little daunting when trying to get involved in this area as a small company while also trying to compete with much, much bigger fish. I wasted so much time researching and waiting on replies.
