Event Details

Are you ready to take advantage of the powerful marketing tools available for selling to Virginia?  Learn from an experienced instructor how you can get eVA registered and SWaM certified for free in order to help you sell to the Commonwealth of Virginia state agencies.

Courtney Mustin, Business Services Manager for Virginia Department of Small Business & Supplier Diversity, will present a seminar for clients who would like to become registered in eVA, become SWaM certified, or – for those who are ready- to help navigate and use eVA more effectively.


Workshop from 9:30am to 12pm, lunch break (on your own) and one-on-one appointments for anyone interested from 1pm to 4pm.

eVA, the Commonwealth’s electronic procurement portal, is one of the most powerful market research tools when selling to any state agency (including public colleges and universities). eVa can help you identify:

  • Solicitations to bid on?
  • Which state agencies buy what I sell?
  • How much do they pay for what I sell?
  • Who are my competitors / potential collaborators?
  • Which of my competitors are winning these bids?

The Commonwealth has a set-aside program that encourages state agencies to purchase goods and services from small businesses like yours. At this workshop, you’ll also learn about SWaM and Micro business certifications and how they can give you a competitive advantage in the marketplace.If you plan to grow your business with the Commonwealth (remember Virginia spends Billions each year), you need to attend this “Doing Business with the Commonwealth” workshop!

To register, please contact Lynda Tubridy at the Central Virginia Small Business Development Center (CV SBDC): 


Phone: 434-295-8198

We look forward to having you with us!
