Subcontracting Opportunities with Prime Contractors: Great Lakes Dredge & Dock
Subcontracting – taking a portion of a contract from the Prime Contractor or another subcontractor – can open a world of opportunities for small businesses. It allows them to participate in contract opportunities that would otherwise be unattainable. It can also be the gateway to larger contracts, as small businesses build a track record of contract success.
This free program will provide you with a unique opportunity to meet with prime contractors – Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Company – to learn about their current and potential subcontracting opportunities.
The seminar is a great networking and learning opportunity that could lead directly to subcontracting opportunities for your small business.
