March is shaping up to be an incredible month for small business outreach for the NASA Office of Small Business Programs (OSBP). Next week, our headquarters staff, along with small business specialists from each of the NASA Centers will be heading to Los Angeles to attend two great events where we will be providing invaluable face to face counseling for our small business partners.
On March 3, 2014, we will be attending the High-Tech Small Business Industry Day at the Carson Center in Carson, California. I was fortunate to be asked to a be a keynote speaker at the event and look forward to delivering insights into the NASA Small Business Program. Our fantastic small business specialists will be at the event as well, providing short face to face discussions at our exhibit booth.
The following day, March 4, 2014, my team and I will be at the NASA Armstrong Flight Research Center (formally Dryden Flight Research Center) and Air Force Space & Missile Systems Center Women-Owned Small Business Industry Day. We will be participating in multiple presentations, an exhibit booth, as well as one on one matchmaking with small businesses.
This a particularly exciting event because it will take place at the kick off of National Women’s History Month. In celebration of that fact, we will be releasing a publication celebrating some of the amazing Women-Owned Small Businesses that have provided invaluable work in helping NASA achieve it’s mission.
If you attend either of these events, I look forward to seeing you at NASA Office of Small Business Programs booth!
