Powering Up! Small Business Teams

Powering Up! Small Business Teams is a collaboration of non-profits and government agencies coming together to develop teams of contract-ready, diverse firms to work with prime contractors and corporations to secure larger federal contracts.

Through a grant made possible by the U.S. Small Business Administration, the team will provide support to help form teams and connect the less-experienced businesses with education, training and mentoring to build scale for federal contracts.
