"Getting in the Game" Workshop
How to do Business in the Defence Industry
Small to Medium Business (SMB’s)
The capital portion of Canada's Defence budget is slated to grow from
$4B/yr to $10B/yr
over the next decade.
Government policy requires that 15% of this value be directed to Small to Medium Businesses.
This means Defence contractors will be looking for up to $1.5B/yr of input from small companies.
Is your company prepared for this opportunity?

What will be Learned:
Understand the federal policy that ensures Canadian small business and public institutions benefit from military procurement, develop your value proposition to harness these opportunities and gain “hands on” experience with a small group of prime contractors applying the lessons learned for “getting in the game” while
receiving valuable feedback directly from industry.
"We were able to use the skills learned during the Getting in the Game workshop to our immediate advantage. We hit it off with a major defence prime right away and were meeting in their Calgary offices less than a week later to discuss our ideas. It was well worth our investment." -

“Getting in the Game” lived up to its promise, providing the background and understanding that allowed us to secure our first defence industry contract. Highly recommended!”
