Welcome to Are You Capable? (Series 6). Are You Capable is the last training session in the 6-Part How to Make Money with Fortune 500 and Government Entities: Vendor Development Training Program Series. So far the attendees have learned how to:
- Create and maintain a solid infrastructure
- Stay in compliance
- Understand how the buyer sees them as a supplier
- Become a certified supplier
- Maximimize their certification
- Connect with their ideal customers
- Locate contracting opportunities
This program is ideal for Disadvantaged & Underrepresented Businesses:
Billions of dollars are being spent on goods and services every year with Fortune 500 and government buyers. There is a mandate of up to 50% to be spent with disadvantaged and underrepresented (small, women, minority, LGBT, and Veteran-owned) businesses. As companies grow they realize that they can’t do everything themselves, so they outsource their goods and service needs, this is where the supplier diversity program comes in.
Under the supplier diversity program, there are partnerships being created between the buyers and suppliers on everything. Here are some examples of the partnerships:
- Your specialty is prepared foods, have you considered partnering with Whole Foods?
- You own a car dealership. Do you know that you can partner with your local, State or Federal law enforcement departments?
- You are a clothing designer, you can partner with Macy’s.
