Partnering for BEAD Success

July 11 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

As expected, states are beginning to open their grant application windows now. What many in the industry did not expect is that several states are planning to keep their application windows open only a few weeks. If you are still considering applying for BEAD funding and have not fully prepared your BEAD application, it is time to step on the gas. Partnering with industry leading experts in consulting, construction, logistics, and active and passive equipment now can act as an accelerator in this process. Creating a strategic deployment plan, with pricing and implementation details is critical to putting forward a successful BEAD application. But pulling that level of detail together quickly can be a real challenge for smaller operators or new entrants attempting to navigate the intricacies of BEAD on their own.

Selecting ecosystem of vendors to partner with who represent an end-to-end solution covering all aspects of the program – from design engineering, to financing, to logistics, workforce development, construction and implementation – will be key to your success. This webinar will bring together representatives from such a coalition to discuss how they can position you for success and why the ecosystem approach is a win for both the bidders and the states.
