Clark County Business Opportunity/Workforce Program – Graduate
Clark County is committed to a business-friendly environment that promotes the development of local small businesses. That’s why we’ve developed a program called BOWD, short for Business Opportunity & Workforce Development.
Small business owners who sign up for the BOWD program receive professional guidance and support as they build capacity to compete for government contracts through a combination of classroom sessions, mentoring, coaching and County relationship-building activities. Participating companies also gain access to skilled and unskilled labor required to help them complete new work. To qualify a small firm must have a business license, offer goods or services the County would purchase and complete an assessment that determines whether the organization fits into the basic, intermediate or advanced level of BOWD’s four-month curriculum. Participating firms attend weekly, bi-weekly or monthly classes, depending upon assigned curriculum levels. BOWD is funded by the U.S. Department of Commerce Economic Development
