SBA participates in Lunch & Learn with Lockheed Martin

FAIRMONT, W.Va.  ─ Those interested in learning how small and diverse businesses can market their capabilities to become a supplier to Lockheed Martin will get their chance later this month. The U.S. Small Business Administration’s West Virginia District Office joins officials from Lockheed Martin for a Lunch and Learn session Thursday, August 27, from noon to 3:30 p.m. at the Robert H. Mollohan Research Center, 1000 Galliher Drive, Fairmont

Information will be provided on what Lockheed Martin looks for in a supplier, and enlighten small business owners on processes to share a new technology and inventions with Lockheed Martin’s engineers or program managers.

“This is a perfect opportunity to meet directly with Lockheed Martin officials involved in the supply chain or supplier diversity functions,” said SBA’s West Virginia Director Karen Friel. “It’s also in perfect alignment with SBA’s American Supplier Initiative.”

“The American Supplier Initiative is part of a comprehensive plan to create jobs through growing small businesses while also ensuring that America has a strong, deep and diverse supply chain,” said SBA Mid-Atlantic Regional Administrator Natalia Olson-Urtecho. “Becoming a corporate supplier can be a true catalyst for business growth, but accessing those supply chains can be challenging for small businesses. The American Supplier Initiative exists to help our nation’s small businesses find their footing in these supply chains.”

The agenda includes presentations by Lockheed Martin’s Drew Brooks, the Clarksburg Site Lead and Manufacturing Senior Manager and Emma Stevens, the Small Business Administrator for Lockheed’s F-35 Program.

This exclusive opportunity is presented in collaboration by the WVHTC Foundation Affiliate Services Group, the I-79 Development Council, and the SBA’s West Virginia District Office who will be available throughout the event to assist small businesses.
There is a nominal cost to attend this event thus requiring registration as lunch will be provided. To register, visit www.affiliateservices.organd select the “Events” tab on the menu bar.
