Grow Your Work with USAID: Local Partner Workshop and Pitch Day

The road to receiving federal funding can be complicated, with a language unto itself and ever-changing processes and requirements. It can be overwhelming to an organization new to federal funding. Even those familiar with the process need to keep up with system updates. This can apply to local partners too, wondering how they can get a foot in the door. We have asked several such experts to share their knowledge for how local partners can successfully navigate the USAID contracting world.

Our speakers and their firms provide extensive multi-day training sessions on how to navigate USAID around the world. If you are a business development professional or in any position requiring an understanding of the proposal process and how to gain access to USAID funding, this interactive workshop will be helpful to you. You'll get practical tips and learn about resources that will help you and your teams bid for and manage USAID-funded projects and build strong partnerships with the agency.

This two-part workshop will provide local partners will provide information and resources to deepen your understanding of how to work with USAID. The first part will feature presentations from experts on the USAID funding process. During the second part, participants will develop their own elevator pitches for projects to USAID. They will then have an opportunity to present to their ideas to our panel of judges consisting of potential USAID primes and potential partners. Gain hands-on experience from our experts and put your knowledge into practice immediately!

Past participants have included professionals from NGOs, for-profit international development companies, universities, and small businesses. Some were new to the world of USAID funding and others wanted to hone their skills and learn about new requirements.

This event is the first of several workshops in this series. We will host more in the future so that organizations from all over the world can participate. Please stay tuned to SID-US’s website for information on future workshops in this series.
