BidExecs Launches Franchise Opportunities, Now a Global Enterprise

BidExecs, which provides full-service business development and proposal management solutions for companies looking to earn government contracts in defense and intelligence, civil government, education, transportation, energy and oil/gas industries, has recently begun to franchise, launching its first franchisee in Houston. The company has plans to open multiple branches by the end of the year.

Reena Bhatia, CEO and founder of BidExecs, says, “I have one goal — innovate and propagate. The more we share, the stronger we get. Veterans, SES government employees — they have a wealth of knowledge. Until now, as a consultant, the only option was to struggle in the gig economy. Not anymore. By being a BidExecs franchisee, we offer them a platform to continue supporting their communities, while building wealth for themselves.”

In addition, BidExecs will be expanding its brand and services internationally, with operations opening in India later this month, and Australia, the U.K. and Canada in the future.

Reminder: APMP’s Live Event Cancellation Policy

In light of APMP’s recent announcement of upcoming in-person events, APMP would like to remind members of its live event cancellation policy:

  • Registrations may be transferred to another individual at any time by contacting member services. APMP will only honor transfers that are reported in advance.
  • If a registration is canceled three months prior to the event, APMP will refund the registration.
  • If a registration is canceled two months prior to the event, we will refund 75% of the registration fee paid originally (early bird or regular).
  • If a registration is canceled one month prior to the event, APMP will refund 50% of the registration fee paid originally (early bird or regular).
  • Less than a month prior to the event, there will be no refunds for cancellations. Again, registrations may be transferred to another individual at any time, provided APMP is notified ahead of time.

If an event is canceled due to the inability to meet because of the COVID-19 pandemic, APMP will offer registrants either a full refund or transfer of their registration to the same event in 2022. Registrations cannot be transferred to any future years past 2022.
