DBE Graduate Panel Discussion

Thu 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM
Topic: Government Contracting

Want to know what it takes to be a wildly successful small business? Join us for the first ever panel discussion with leading minority- and woman-owned Colorado business owners who have graduated from the DBE program.

You'll hear about their journey from when they first got certified to adding capabilities and growing the business, to ultimately exceeding the small business size standard for the DBE program. They will share lessons learned and best practices as a DBE certified firm and now as a large company with ongoing success beyond the DBE program.

Moderator: Marsha Nelson, Chief Equity Officer, CDOT
