About the Event

Time: 12:00 p.m. CT - 1:00 p.m. CT

With the announcement of several Executive Orders, including the Buy American EO and the American Supply Chain EO, the U.S. government has renewed its interest in procuring American goods and services. As such, there are many opportunities for small businesses to secure government funding and participate in a historic rebuild of the American economy.

But many small businesses are asking: where do I even begin? Join MxD and partners for a webinar that will cover the fundamentals of government funding, including popular award types, where to find these opportunities, and how MxD can connect you to helpful resources. In addition, you’ll hear from three small businesses that fall under the DoD’s modernization priorities in order to spark ideas about potential collaboration opportunities.

To summarize, attendees will walk away with the following key points:

  • Fundamentals of Government Funding
  • How MxD can assist small businesses looking to take advantage of a renewed interest in buying American
  • Examples of businesses that are excelling under DoD Modernization Priority areas and how to engage with them
