Can Made certify my business?
Yes, because we understand that receiving certifications places your business in a more competitive position in selling to the federal government and federal prime contractors.
But, getting started in federal government contracting can often be an overwhelming and complex undertaking.
This is why Made provides specialized support for minority entreprenuers to advance within the government space.
This includes resources and services for capability statement(s), certifications, grant applications, contracts (GSA schedule) and bid opportunities.
Many small business owners neglect to see the full potential available to them through small business certifications.
These certifications allow for a business to bid on contracts and work with the world’s largest consumer of products and services, The Federal Government.
