USAID distributed more than $21 billion last fiscal year. Join us for a seminar on how to enter and grow in the USAID market. Come and hear about some of the best practices for starting and growing your work with USAID and sharing USAID partnering best practices learned from experience.
We are delighted to welcome, once again, Mike Shanley, CEO of AidKonekt Data as he shares some insights and experiences on how to best leverage delivering work for USAID.
USAID distributed more than $21 billion last fiscal year. Attend this seminar to learn best practices for starting and growing your work with USAID. We will share USAID partnering best practices our firm has learned through supporting our client’s work with USAID and USAID prime implementers. Come learn how to start building your organization's USAID market strategy, and ways to get started as a subcontractor by connecting with established USAID primes. 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. This will be targeted to international development and aid organizations based in the UK that are interested in USAID funding. We will discuss changes under the Biden Administration, the New Partnerships Initiative, and USAID's direction under Administrator Samantha Power. Please bring your questions about working with USAID! There will be an opportunity to schedule one-on-one meetings with Mike Shanley following the event.
