I’m Randy Brown, the Business Services Manager (Central and South Virginia) with the Virginia Department of Small Business & Supplier Diversity. I’ve listed my availability for 1 on 1 business consulting sessions throughout my region for the month of October. These are designed to help you grow your business with the Commonwealth. All of these sessions are free of charge. However, registration is required. These sessions are by appointment ONLY.

 

One on One Business Consults
These 90 – minute sessions are designed to help businesses like yours better understand how to do business with the Commonwealth of Virginia state agencies. Whether it’s helping your business become certified in Virginia’s small business set-aside programs (SWaM and Micro), navigating the electronic procurement portal (eVa) which ALL state agencies use for solicitations, or helping you connect with key agency buyers, these sessions can help!

You cannot register for these one on one consulting sessions online. To request a 1 on 1 business consult, email Randy.brown@sbsd.virginia.gov and indicate your top 3 preferred dates / time slots.
