This session will provide a high level overview of the Commonwealth's purchasing process, including purchasing policies that affect how buyers use the eVA system to "shop." If you're not already an eVA registered Vendor, you'll learn how to get signed-up, as well as where to go for help.
This session was designed with “Veteran Small Business Owners” in mind! You will be introduced to Resources available to start and grow your business! We will share marketing, insurance, loan resources, and much more! If you are not a Veteran, don’t let that stop you from registering to attend! The information can be used by anyone in business or starting a business. We look forward to seeing you there. The registration link: https://clients.virginiasbdc.org/events.aspx
When the incentive was introduced in late 2017, OZs were intended to help revitalize the nation’s most underinvested communities. Three years in, we examine the program’s progress to that end with a focus on equitable economic development and housing. In a time when place-based impact investing is vital, we discuss the role of OZs in enhancing and uplifting the strengths of undercapitalized towns, cities, and counties, many of which are communities of color.
