Man holidng a pickaxe - rural government contracts


Do you reside in a rural or isolated community? Don’t let that stop you from starting or growing your business.  With access to technology and the right training, you can sell your product or services to any corporation or government agency.

Did you know that the products and services that government agencies buy are contracts that must be performed at the government’s place of business?  This provides a lucrative space for home-based businesses, micro businesses, rural-owned businesses, and work-at-home-parents to transition into the federal contracting arena.

But how? 

How i-Cubator Helps Rural and Home-Based Businesses

Contracts and Grants has developed the solution home-based businesses and rural enterprises need with the launch of our I-Cubator.

I-Cubator is a subscription-based online small business incubator specifically designed to help home-based businesses and rural businesses get access to information, relationships, resources, and business opportunities.  Your location is no longer an impediment for doing business all over the world. 

The challenge many home-based businesses, micro businesses, rural small businesses, and work-at-home parents face is getting timely access to potential opportunities. Micro businesses and especially rural businesses miss opportunities because their location and/or small network keep them out of the loop. make it nearly impossible for business owners to latch on to bigger opportunities. Rural businesses often find the nearest chamber of commerce may be 100 miles away. Proprietors may serve the same people, the same businesses day after day and never have news of a federal contracting opportunity break through the wall of their local network. After all, the average person knows nothing about federal contracting.

If you are a rural-based or home-based business owner and you want to prepare your business for growth and/or to make a successful transition into the public sector by learning how to do business with the government, join the only web-based small business incubator with a developed curriculum that will help you find and win contracts.
