Surety Bond Guarantee Webinar

Thu 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM
Facilitated by LSBDC State Office
Topic: Government Contracting

Have you been wondering what a Surety Bond is, and how it could help your business?

Surety bonds help small businesses win contracts by providing the customer with a guarantee that the work will be completed. Many public and private contracts require surety bonds, which are offered by surety companies. The SBA guarantees surety bonds for certain surety companies, which allows the companies to offer surety bonds to small businesses that might not meet the criteria for other sureties.

Do you have limited or no experience with Surety Bonds? Are you having trouble qualifying or even trying to increase your bond limit? Then this webinar is here to answer questions you may have. Join us as Peter C. Gibbs, Director of SBA's Office of Surety Guarantees discusses Contract Bonds and Surety Bond Guarantee.
