The NASA Small Business Program holds industry days to reach out to small businesses that may not have had networking opportunities with NASA. Attending one of our industry days will provide the perfect opportunity to seek further information on how you can do business with NASA. Your business could help support our various missions here on earth and into deep space. We encourage small businesses to sign up across the nation no matter what socioeconomic category you may be!

Ringing in the New Year

As we say farewell to 2015 and welcome the New Year, what do you typically reflect on as the year comes to a close? I like to reflect on what has transpired over the last 12 months and brainstorm new resolutions for the road ahead. We all like to be reminded of the highlights, success and cheerful endeavors, however, let’s also look at our setbacks and weaknesses so we can learn and grow from them moving forward.  

The NASA Office of Small Business Programs will continuously look for new innovative and creative ways to promote the development and management of NASA programs that assist all socioeconomic categories of Small Business.

As you think about your 2016 New Year’s resolutions, consider your local small businesses and think of ways to continue supporting them! We are looking forward to seeing the new ways that small businesses will help NASA achieve its mission next year and the years ahead!
