Business Matchmaking 2019
U.S. DOT Small Business Matchmaking Event | US Department of Transportation
The U. Small Business Administration, better known as the SBA, announced Thursday that it is giving such meetings a nudge by hosting three business matchmaking events during National Small Business Week, which takes place June The goal, according to the SBA, is to allow small businesses to have face-to-face meetings with prime contractors and federal agencies to learn about contracting and subcontracting opportunities. Face-to-face meetings between small business owners, contractors, and federal agencies will last 15 minutes each, and the day will include speed-mentoring, panels on access to capital, government contracting, exporting, supply chain, and the use of social media in addition to the matchmaking event. Last year, approximately businesses and 20 buyers were matched based on compatibility and the buying needs of federal agencies and corporations. They must also be registered in System Award Management , the federal government's official database of small businesses interested in securing federal contracts. Networking is everything--especially when it comes to landing prime contracting opportunities.
