State Procurement and Access to Capital Conference

April 28, 2023 | Irvine

Irvine Marriott

18000 Von Karman Avenue Irvine, CA 92612

Learn how to get capital for your small business!

With the passing of AB2019 (Petrie-Norris), there is a mandate that 25% of all state contract dollars are spent on a state-certified small business.

The State Procurement and Access to Capital Conference will provide actionable information on how to get your business state certified and how your business can take advantage of the billions of dollars that are contracted each year through the more than 200 state agencies and departments.

The conference will have participation from 10 state agencies, including the Department of General Services and five lenders, as well as a special presentation from Assembly Member Cottie Petrie-Norris (A73). Join us and learn about procurement opportunities, hear from lenders about loan options for your business, and participate in matchmaking with state agencies with the opportunity to meet with matched agencies one-on-one.

Lunch and parking will be provided.
