CFTA/Startup Weekend Pre-Event Party

RSVP at: https://www.eventbrite.com/o/central-florida-tech-alliance-26925650367 Tech Stars Startup Weekend is a global phenomenon in over 150 countries with close to 200,000 alumni. Over one weekend, participants will pitch brand-new business ideas, form teams, validate customers, present to a judging panel and compete for prizes. Existing businesses cannot compete so it is a level playing field for new ideas. Orlando has a great track record having won global awards in 2017 and 2018 and launching new startups such as Trobo (featured on SharkTank). On Friday 10/4/19, Central Florida Tech Alliance is putting together a showcase event featuring Jason Eichenholz (Luminar) and Taj Adhav (LeaseCake) to talk about the impact that Startup Weekend is making in the community. So any students, professionals, and would-be entrepreneurs who want to learn about the event are welcome to join. Free food and beer included. You are invited to attend the pre-event party at Credo Conduit on Friday Oct 4th 6-8pm. RSVP here: https://www.eventbrite.com/o/central-florida-tech-alliance-26925650367

Where: SBDC at the University of Central Florida, National Entrepreneur Ctr, Orlando When: Thursday, January 02, 2020 10:00 AM to 12:30 PMTopic: Government ContractingFederal, State, and Local Government procurement is the largest target market in the world. The question is usually not "Does the government buy what you are selling?"...it is more "Can you be competitive enough and relentless enough to position your business to win government contracts?". If you think you can be competitive, then government contracting may be a good growth opportunity for your business. The "Government Contracting Overview" seminar, presented by the Florida PTAC at UCF in partnership with the Florida SBDC at UCF, is designed for established small business owners with some commercial momentum that are curious about government contracting, as well as business owners that may already be involved in government contracting. The workshop is based on a 6-step framework that helps newer contractors understand the process and helps more experienced contractors identify opportunities to 'backfill' best practices in their efforts. The six steps that will be discussed are: . Evaluate : Is Your Business Ready? . Register: SAM, State, County, City, Primes . Plan: Your Government Contracting Marketing Plan . Prepare: Marketing Tool Kit . Pursue: Reactive and Proactive Strategies . Achieve: Contract You will also have the opportunity to network with other small business owners. Join us for this great learning opportunity.Speaker: PTAC specialist Fee: No CostLink
