Kisaq, LLC and RQ Construction presented at the 10th Annual Veterans and Small Business Training and Outreach Conference in Reno, NV as the Kisaq-RQ Joint Venture Entity. The conference provided resources for small businesses to increase their competitiveness in the Federal marketplace.

Representatives from both companies were available to answer questions to conference attendees. As a large business, RQ Construction used the three day conference to network with small businesses, explaining available opportunities and discussing options for future work. Kisaq also networked with other small businesses and met several USACE and Small Business Administration representatives to learn more about upcoming opportunities. Kisaq and RQ attended multiple educational seminars with topics on LEED, safety, opportunities, and how to propose to the different branches of Government.
