WBE Meetup with a Twist

June 19 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT

WBE Meetup with a Twist

Attention WBEs! Join us June 19 for the next WBE MeetUp – with a Twist!

Building relationships with our corporate and government procurement leaders is important AND so is building relationships with your fellow WBEs. There is so much opportunity for WBEs to collaborate and stand out even more as buyers look to achieve greater product/service stability, lower costs and greater market share.

The next WBE Meetup is focused on getting to know and collaborating with other WBEs.
Do you have a success story about a collaboration you did with another WBE? Are you collaborating with other WBEs in any way? We want to hear from you.

This June’s Meetup is dedicated to exploring:

  • How WBEs can grow and scale their business by collaborating with other WBEs
  • Getting to know your fellow WBEs to be better able to make referrals when someone you know is looking for a specific product or service (why not promote a fellow WBE)?
  • Success stories from WBEs

Join hosts Anne-Marie DeLauriers and Charmaine Hammond as we dive deeper into how WBE collaborations can grow and scale your business and help you stand out in a room full of prospective buyers.

(Valid WBE Certification is required)
