What We Do

8(a) Business Development Program

The SBA’s 8(a) Business Development Program is designed to assist businesses owned by individuals who are socially and economically disadvantaged by giving them preferential treatment in federal contract awards.


HUBZone certification is designed to provide federal contracting opportunities to businesses that are located and employee people in areas that are marked by lower wages and higher unemployment rates than the rest of the country.


The Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business Certification is for veterans who suffered a disability while on active duty.


The WOSB or 8(m) Certification program is designed to help women make inroads into industries which are statistically under represented by women. There are 83 NAICS codes where women-owned small businesses with these certifications can now obtain preferential treatment in federal contract awards.

We provide a free 10 minute call to screen applicants to see if their company is eligible for all four SBA certifications, including the 8a certification. We then provide the client with a list of required documents to help them avail the full 8a advantage. We interview them, create required schedules, process applications and help in online form submission.

What ROI Can I Expect?

The ROI varies based upon the industry of the firm and which certification is obtained. Average revenues range from $1.0 million per firm for WOSB certification holders to over $3.7 million for 8a certification holders. For most SBA approved firms their 8a certification provides growth opportunities more than all other marketing channels combined.
