Headshots and Business Opportunities is a workshop aimed at aiding minority-owned companies in learning about contracting opportunities and how to conduct business with our presenting sponsors and panelists. The workshop's objective is to provide a guided networking experience that creates strategic awareness of business opportunities in the government and corporate space.


During the workshop, attendees will engage with a panel of experts who share their knowledge and experiences. The event provides insights on how to navigate the contracting process and build successful business relationships with potential partners.


In addition to the panel discussion, attendees also have a chance to participate in a free headshot session. 


Our small businesses gain valuable insights into how to identify and pursue business opportunities, as well as how to build successful business relationships.
