Looking for new markets for your small business’ goods or services?

Consider selling to the federal government by getting certified by the SBA.

Small business certifications are like professional certifications; they document a special capability or status that will help you compete in the marketplace. Unlike permits and licenses, you do not need to obtain certifications to legally operate. However, in order to take advantage of business opportunities, such as government contracts, you may need to obtain some certifications.

Learn about these certifications:

  • Small Disadvantaged Business
  • Women Owned Small Business
  • Veteran and Service Disabled
  • 8(a) Business Development Program
  • HUBZone Program
