Leesburg, VA (January 19, 2018) – The Mason Enterprise Center in Leesburg will hold its next quarterly HUBZone Business Meeting on Monday, January 22, 2018, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., at the Mason Enterprise Center in downtown Leesburg (202 Church Street SE). The meeting is free and open to all small businesses. Lunch will be provided by Access National Bank.

This quarter’s meeting will focus on HUBZone employee strategies and HUBZone principal office requirements. The featured speaker will be Brian Lederhouse, SBA Business Opportunity Specialist, who does first-level reviews of HUBZone applications. In addition, representatives from Leesburg-based, HUBZone-certified contractors Lynker Technologies and Custom Software Systems will share their experiences with the certification process and best practices for small government contractors. 

A program of the U.S. Small Business Administration, the HUBZone program helps small businesses gain preferential access to federal procurement opportunities while increasing employment opportunities in economically distressed areas. In an effort to assist local businesses with navigating the HUBZone certification process, the Mason Enterprise Center and Leesburg Economic Development Office have partnered with local business owners who have completed the process successfully to present quarterly information sharing meetings.
