After more than ten years of lobbying in Washington, D.C. on behalf of small businesses and government procurement, Lourdes Martin-Rosa began noticing a void in representation for small businesses. After traveling numerous times to fight for her clients’ rights and navigating through the maze of federal proposals and contracts, she knew her formula would work for other small businesses. This is when Government Business Solutions (GBS) was born. GBS is a certified 8(a) women-owned small business that provides guidance, education and training to hundreds of small businesses on the importance of growing their business through government contracting. Lourdes currently serves as the American Express OPEN Advisor on Government Contracting. In partnership with American Express OPEN, Lourdes has helped create resources and guides that offer “main street” shortcuts for all small business owners, ranging from the novice business owner interested in pursuing government contracts to the more experienced government contractor wanting to explore other methods of winning government contracts. As advisor, she has been featured in hundreds of media publications including FOX News, MSNBC, CNN Money, the Washington Post, and the New York Times. Lourdes’ expertise has granted her the opportunity to serve as a Small Business Programs expert providing guidance to the White House Small Business Taskforce, as well as a Women Impacting Public Policy (WIPP) National Partner. In March 2016, Lourdes received an Award of Recognition from the White House and the U.S. Small Business Administration for her ongoing efforts to mentor women-owned small businesses across America.
