Leveraging Business Certifications and the SBA to Grow and Scale Your Business

NAWBO Columbus is pleased to welcome Pat Gibson to Columbus. Pat serves as the Senior Advisor to SBA Administrator Linda McMahon at the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). Thanks to the recent passage of HB494 by the Ohio Legislature, we will soon have a process in place for the first-ever Women's Business Enterprise (WBE) Certification for Ohio.

Join Pat as she shares practical ways to leverage business certifications at all levels - national, state and local. Additionally, she will discuss how the SBA can assist women in growing and scaling your greatest asset - your business.

NAWBO Columbus members have requested more learning opportunities and resources to help them grow and scale their businesses. We're pleased to kick off 2019 with this exciting opportunity.

Register today! Space is limited.
