IF YOU ARE MORE KNOWLEDGABLE TO FEDERAL CONTRACTING
You will want to attend the break-out sessions designed specifically for those who are looking for higher level content. When you arrive at the ChallengeHER event, plan to follow the track for advanced contractors.
Matchmaking is available at some of the events to all attendees whether you are new to the process or more experienced. If matchmaking is at your event and you have elected to participate, the matchmaking team will connect with you personally to get your DUNS number and NAICS code.
If you are new to federal contracting, we will assign you to ‘Educational Matchmaking’ to assist you in your preparations to speak with a federal buyer. Seeing a buyer before you are prepared will not produce the positive results you are seeking.
If you are ready to meet with buyers, we will assign you to one-on-one meetings with the buyers according to your NAICS codes.
Please don’t hesitate to email ChallengeHER@wipp.org with any questions.
