If you are a small business headquartered in San Diego, one of the best ways to attract business is to sign up for the City of San Diego Small Business Development Program.
In the program, you can learn about the wide range of products, goods and services the city buys and, if you sell or provide one of those products, goods or services, you may be able to do business with the city. Joining the program will better position your business to bid for city contracts.
What it’s for:
The program is free and is designed to help small San Diego businesses:
• Assess the readiness of their bidding and contracting procedures.
• Better position themselves to successfully bid on City of San Diego contracts.
• Understand the benefits of the San Diego’s Small Local Business Enterprise Program.
• Obtain individual counseling sessions, technical assistance and training specific to their needs.
• Receive certification as a Small Local Business Enterprise to receive bid discounts or preference points when bidding on city contracts.
As part of the program, you will also get invites to exclusive networking events where you can meet with the city staff who are responsible for making purchases for the city.
