We invite you to a USAID Funding Event.

Learn how to enter and grow in the USAID market.

Learn best practices for starting and growing your work with USAID, which distributes more than $21 billion each year! We will share USAID partnering best practices our firms have learned through the support of our client’s work with USAID and USAID prime implementers. Come learn how to start building your organization’s USAID market strategy.

The seminar will cover how to learn about USAID funding opportunities, the USAID procurement process, and will give you tools you can take back to your organization to build and grow your USAID work. It will be targeted to international development and aid organizations based outside of Washington, DC that are interested in USAID funding.
