The goal of this program is to help small companies increase their capacity to bid and win new business, which can also increase their potential as employers.”  

Since the first CCBDEP session, approved by Clark County Commissioners in 2007 and launched in January of 2008, 130 firms have graduated with dozens winning a combined total of more than $6.5 million in new contracts from the County and other entities.
