VIB Network Conference San Diego

PROUD MEMBER OF THE VIB NETWORK

We are proud to be a VIB (Veterans In Business) Network Member and celebrated by attending the VIB National Conference in San Diego, CA at the Kona Kai Resort on October 28th and 29th of this year.

We listened to guest speakers, networked with like-minded veteran business and attended the Tactical Networking Roundtables.

 

Veterans in Business

 

We learned about the process of doing business with state and government entities, the certification process for each entity and the way to research current and past RFP (Request For Proposals). We also learned how to win government and state contracts by getting in front of the “right people”. That old adage, “It’s not WHAT you know, but WHO you know”. Is especially in place when dealing with these types of large state and government controlled business.

We were initially apprehensive about doing business with state and government entities thinking about the amount of red tape that would have to cut in order to win and work on a project. We were wrong. It is easier than you think. Once you get certified with the state or pass their preliminary requirements, it is as easy as applying for the open projects.

One thing that is very important is that your company needs to be able to do what is says it can do and in the time required to complete that task. Otherwise, they will never do business with you again. You are basically working with one or two people for each project who will oversee your performance. They decide if you will get more projects.
