The RFP Success® Company is launching a first-of-its-kind accelerator program to teach small business owners the tools and strategies necessary to win state government contracts. Designed for small business leaders, the program will be spearheaded by The RFP Success® Company Founder & CEO Lisa Rehurek.

“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to serve small businesses in this capacity,” said Rehurek. “Our proven framework for securing multi-year state government contracts is simple and straightforward.”

In The RFP Success® Small Business Accelerator, business leaders will master the art of compelling proposal writing, learn what the evaluators are really looking for, how to earn higher scores, what is needed to stand out from competitors and the proven winning framework to consistent wins.

Rehurek is an influential member of the local business community and is deeply committed to investing in the growth of small, certified, diverse and mid-market businesses. She is passionate about simplifying the RFP process to enable small businesses to compete for millions of dollars in state contracts.

Bestselling author of The RFP Success® Book and host of the longest-running podcast dedicated solely to RFP response topics, Rehurek is the industry’s leading authority on winning SLED (state, local, education) contracts through the request for proposal process.

Through the implementation of its proprietary RFP Success® Framework, The RFP Success® Company has helped clients secure over $500 million in state government contracts, averaging a 73% RFP win rate and a 98% downselect rate for their clients.

Rehurek has built an impactful seven-figure business and is among the top 2% of women business owners. In 2023, she led her company to be named one of Inc. 5000’s fastest-growing private companies in America.
