Dualos Sponsors HUBZone Small Business Week Virtual Summit

Dualos Sponsors HUBZone Small Business Week Virtual Summit

TACOMA, WASHINGTON—Dualos will be a key sponsor of the 2020 HUBZone Small Business Week Summit, which will be hosted online this year as a virtual event from September 8–11.

HUBZone is a program of the United States Small Business Administration that was created in 1998 to support growth in historically underutilized business (HUB) zones with the goal of awarding three percent of all federal contract dollars annually to qualifying companies. These  are communities that by definition lack capital investment from Capitol Hill and in federal agencies. Meeting the three percent goal requires coordination, networking, outreach, and advocacy, as well as lobbying for economic development and policy reform, for which the nonprofit HUBZone Contractors National Council was formed.

The Small Business Week Summit is week-long networking and educational summit organized by the HUBZone Contractors National Council. It features training and educational seminars from top industry professionals, government and industry matchmaking with agencies and prime contractors, and panel discussions. Typically held as an in-person meeting, this year the Summit will be held virtually due to ongoing public health concerns related to the coronavirus pandemic.

Dualos takes enormous pride in sponsoring this year’s event. Based in a HUBZone in Tacoma, Washington, Dualos itself is a Native American owned and women owned small business. Its advocacy for small businesses, women, and minorities not only makes strategic sense for the company—it’s part of its culture and values. Inspired by family, education, equal rights, and the environment, Dualos actively contributes to its local community by bringing higher paying jobs to the area and promoting the inclusion and advancement of minority groups in STEM industries.

“[Sponsoring this year’s Summit] was an easy decision for us,” says  Dualos President Nancy Papineau. “We try to lead by example. For business growth, economic growth, for our community, for our industry, for our personal growth. It’s who we are as a company. And the HUBZone program is a powerful tool for competition and the health of small businesses. Especially in 2020, and beyond.”
