One On One Business Consultation

The Virginia Department of Small Business & Supplier Diversity (SBSD), in collaboration with the Dan River Business Development Center offers one-on-one business counseling sessions. These sessions are designed to help businesses like yours better understand how to do business with the Commonwealth of Virginia state agencies (of which there are approximately 270). Whether it’s helping your business become certified in Virginia’s small business set-aside programs (SWaM and Micro), navigating the electronic portal which ALL state agencies use for solicitations (eVa), or helping you connect with key agency buyers SBSD can help! Some of the market research tools eVa offers are:

  • Identifying which state agencies are buying what you sell
  • How much these agencies are paying for your products and services
  • Who are the buyers and how to contact them
  • Who are your competitors
  • And much more

Armed with this information, your company will be in a better position to win state contracts as well as contracts with many local government agencies across the region.
