The government contracting workshop series hosted by the Aurora-South Metro SBDC and sponsored by Connect2DOT and the Minority Business Office is wrapping up for 2019.  The workshops range from the perspective of a business wanting to discover the market potential for their business and what the government buys to the existing business wanting to become better at obtaining and maintaining government contracts.
