Why Female Entrepreneurs Should Leverage Government Contracts
Are government contracts worth the effort they take to pursue? Or do the certification process and compliance requirements take too much work? Many small businesses, especially those owned by women, don’t know how to take advantage of the opportunity and lose out on the potential perks.
After working for years in the financial industry, Jean Kristensen joined her family’s security business. In an effort to really help them scale and grow, she started to pursue government contracts and explore different certification programs for working with the government. Through her experience, an idea was born: There was no company or program helping business owners leverage their certifications and understand the process to getting and ultimately managing government relationships. Now Jean runs a consulting firm, Jean Kristensen Associates, that helps women-owned businesses pursue and manage government contracts to boost sales and grow their businesses.
Follow along as Jean shares the ups and downs of entrepreneurship and how bidding for government contracts can grow your revenues in ways you haven’t expected before.
