You are invited to a GovContractPros webinar, “Successes, Pitfalls, and Surprises: Lessons from a Successful 8(a) Participant” featuring Terra Site Constructors Founder, President and CEO Babur R. Mian on June 4, 2024 at 1 PM EDT.

The SBA’s 8(a) Business Development Program offers certain small businesses who are accepted into the program significant advantages in the federal marketplace. While the opportunities are significant, the timing of participation and compliance with the SBA’s can be challenging for small businesses. As the saying goes, hindsight is 20:20 and lessons learned from other 8(a) participants can help.

Please join John Shoraka and GovContractPros in discussion with Babur Mian, President & CEO of Terra Constructs. Terra’s success in the federal marketplace for construction is an example of the best of 8(a) participation. Some of Terra’s projects include I-64 capacity improvements, Chesapeake and Ohio Canal Southside Prism Stabilization in Georgetown, and Waterfront dock rehabilitation in Fort Sumter, SC.

During this discussion, Mr. Mian will offer his insights on the 8(a) program, tips for success, and even things he might do differently if applying to 8(a) for the first time. Learn what has worked exceptionally well for Terra and gain practical knowledge that you can apply to your own business.

GovContractPros is proud to serve Terra and advise other clients in applying for, maintaining, and navigating the 8(a) Program.
