CERT for All Small Businesses @ Metropolitan State University - Library
Jul 26 @ 1:30 pm – 4:30 pm
Benefits of the CERT program are undeniable, so says Arif Ahmed, owner of Ali Mama's Sambusas, a restaurant on the East Side. But there can be challenges in getting set up to be CERT certified. On July 26th, one on one assistance in navigating the process is coming to us.
 
 
CERT qualifies you for the priority vendor list for things like the Super Bowl coming in 2018 and for vendor contracting with cities and counties. Assistance for Small Business Enterprises (SBE), Minority Business Enterprises (MBE) and Woman Business Enterprises (WBE) will be available at the workshop. Contact Paris if you have questions.
