Thank you for your interest in ChallengeHER!


This event is designed to assist you in competing for government contracts by reducing the competition utilizing the WOSB Set Aside Program.  The ChallengeHER events have sessions for those who are just beginning the process of becoming a federal contractor, and for those who have federal experience but looking for higher level content.



We strongly encourage you to watch the webinars listed below to insure all attendees have a similar level of understanding of the procurement process.  When you arrive at the ChallengeHER event, plan to follow the track for beginners as this will provide information in a logical sequence to maximize your learning.

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 with any questions.
