Selling to the government can help a business grow, but there are also many opportunities to be had and experiences to learn from in the private sector. To help Minority- and Women-owned firms grow, twelve corporate partners have teamed up with SBS to offer three programs that involve working directly with them through workshops, one-on-one mentorship, contracting opportunities, and more! Participants will have the opportunity to work with some of the best in their industries.
Our CAP corporate partners are:
- American Express
- BNY Mellon
- Columbia University
- Con Edison
- Goldman Sachs
- National Grid
M/WBE Recruiting & Referral – SBS and our corporate partners will refer certified firms for specific contracting opportunities, both private and public. This is a benefit to getting certified, as any qualifying M/WBEs will be contacted regarding specific contract opportunities. All 12 corporate partners will be participating in this program.
M/WBE Mentorship Program – new mentorship program for Professional Services, Standard Services, and Goods M/WBEs and small businesses with at least three years in operation and continual growth for the past two years. SBS, CAP and Entrepreneurs' Organization (EO) are partnering to provide firms in these sectors with business and leadership guidance from mentors who are successful entrepreneurs and members of EO's NY Chapter. Over 26 weeks, participants will work with mentors and fellow participants on business and leadership issues and will learn from seminars presented by CAP corporate executives.

Navigating the Corporate Supply Chain Workshop Series – To further help certified firms and small businesses do business with the private sector, participating corporate partners are presenting workshops that provide insight on how to do business with them. Topics will include Fundamentals of Strategic Sourcing, Joint Venturing & Firm Collaboration, Responding to Bids and RFPs, and more! All ten corporate partners participate in this program.
