DSBS | Your Key to Being Discovered

FREE Small Business Course designed by the HUBZone Chamber of Commerce


 ‘DSBS | Your Key to Being Discovered’ is a step-by-step course designed to help HUBZone and other small businesses power up their profiles in the SBA’s Dynamic Small Business Search (DSBS) database. The course is hosted by the HUBZone Chamber of Commerce and presented by federal contracting expert Neil McDonnell.

Business owners are "busy" people! Why should you leave the comfort of your office when you can work more efficiently online? 

Neil's 6 module course can guide you through the process and help you make the decisions that best fit your company and your goals.

The Dynamic Small Business Search (DSBS) is the primary database federal buyers use for their market research. If you want them to find you, you must make your profile as robust as possible. Otherwise you are INVISIBLE!

With this FREE course, Neil is removing your barriers and pushing businesses forward toward success in the government marketplace.


Don't let companies charge you outrageous fees to register in SAM.gov and DSBS! Those companies still need you to do the work and they take the credit ...AND your money! 

When you create your own DSBS profile, you become competent and prepared to thrive in the federal marketplace. You can do this!

  • rich company description
  • comprehensive NAICS codes
