We at JKA understand the impact that getting a large contract with a corporate partner has on a small business.
Over 20 years ago, it was my goal to break through the barriers of being a small minority-owned business and increase my firm’s capacity by leveraging my certification as a diverse supplier.
It was not easy, but I cracked the code landing multiple government contracts and landing my first corporate client with a well-known national bank.
