POTOMAC, Md. — The Veteran Institute for Procurement (VIP) has scheduled for March a free three-day class for veteran-owned small businesses.
Class size is limited to 50 companies, and the classes are offered to one executive from each of the enrolled businesses.
The “VIP GROW” class will be held March 20-22, at the William F. Bolger Center in Potomac, Md., located 11 miles from the White House.
VIP GROW is designed for veteran-owned businesses to increase their ability to win government contracts.
Professional service experts, government officials and agency representatives will provide hands-on, market-based instruction that helps companies establish better business practices.
Enrollees pay for their own transportation to the Bolger Center, but their housing is free.
Since the launch of VIP in 2009, 922 businesses have graduated from the organization’s various classes, but no New Hampshire business has yet participated.
The courses are funded by the Montgomery County Chamber Community Foundation through a cooperative agreement with U.S. Small Business Administration partners and VIP sponsors.
Those interested in enrolling in the March course can visit www.nationalvip.org for more information.
