OHUB is partnering with Amazon Web Services to connect minority and women-owned enterprise software companies and IT professional services firms to federal, state and local government contracting opportunities and beyond.

For context, governments are increasingly investing in cloud-based solutions and services.  This paradigm shift is creating massive opportunities for IT vendors to shape this digital transformation, and for startups to consider the public sector as a customer base.  We believe that cloud acumen will grow in its importance as a business differentiator, particularly for small IT businesses and technology startups. As part of our commitment to the growth of small and historically disadvantaged businesses, we’re working with Amazon Web Services to expand the pipeline of women and minority-owned enterprises who can deliver a wide range of cloud-based products and services to government across state, local, and federal jurisdictions.

To this end, if you own, work or lead business development for a minority or women-owned enterprise software company or IT professional services firm that desires to do partner with AWS and governmental agencies, I’d like to personally invite you to attend their upcoming event, Mission: Possible Atlanta Small Business & Government Innovation Event, November 14-15 in Atlanta, GA.

Listen to GHOGH with Jamarlin Martin | Episode 06: Rodney Sampson

A pioneering name in economic opportunity for Black tech, Rodney Sampson is the founder of HBCU@SXSW and the Atlanta-based Opportunity Hub. In this episode, Rodney discusses investing in Atlanta blockchain startups Storj and Patientory, and the importance of connecting HBCU endowments to Black tech.

I’ll be joining Shonte Eldridge, state and local government strategic advisor with Amazon Web Services, for an interactive fireside chat on the opening day of the event.

Building new minority supplier opportunities is a core competency of OHUB’s diverse, equitable and inclusive ecosystem building practice and work.

Thank you in advance for giving this opportunity your serious attention.

Regards,

Rodney Sampson
Executive Chairman & CEO
Opportunity Hub
