Event description

Description

The BLocal partner companies developed the BLocal BUILD College, a program that assists small, local, minority-owned, woman-owned, and/or disadvantaged businesses in the design and construction industries. The curriculum developed and taught by BLocal BUILD College partners and affiliates fosters the development of key competencies and relationships that are necessary to drive growth. Each class/cohort includes teaching sessions with such topics as strategic planning, marketing/business development, financial management and banking, human resources, bidding to contracting, reading project documents, bonding and surety, insurance, and safety and quality management. At the culmination of each class/cohort, there is a graduation ceremony to celebrate the businesses’ commitment to participating in the BLocal BUILD College.

To date, five (5) classes/cohorts representing more than 70 businesses have completed the BLocal BUILD College. This Reverse Vendor Fair will allow your organization the opportunity to learn more about the capabilities and project experience of some of our BLocal BUILD College alumni companies. More than a dozen of these alumni businesses will be exhibiting, and, in addition, a large number are planning to attend. Also, BLocal BUILD College partners, design and construction (D&C) companies and some of the Johns Hopkins D&C staff have been invited to attend. Therefore, this is an excellent opportunity for your organization to learn more about these businesses, as well as to network.

We hope you can make it on Friday, July 12th!

A list of exhibiting companies will be provided to the registered organizations closer to the date of the Reverse Vendor Fair.

If you have any questions or encounter issues when registering, please contact Hope Smith, Program Manager, EI Vendor Relations, JHHS FD+C, hsmith76@jhmi.edu.
