Business One-on-One Matchmaking Sessions with the SBA and Buyers from various entities are available only to High-Tech Small Business Industry Day attendees.

SBA has partnered with Business Matchmaking to sponsor this matchmaking event as part of the SBA’s American Supplier Initiative which is designed to help bridge the gap between small, nimble businesses looking for new opportunities and large corporations looking for innovative new ideas and diversity in their supply chains.

Reserve a Session: In order to participate in a SBA One-on-One Business Matchmaking Session, you must first register for the 2nd Annual High-Tech Small Business Industry Day at hightech.eventbrite.com. Upon registration, you will be taken to a confirmation webpage that will contain a link to an SBA sponsored website from which you can reserve a session in advance. You will also receive a confirmation email with a PDF file of your event ticket(s) which will contain the same link from which you can reserve a session. Same day reservations and walk-in’s will be accommodated first come, first serve, but it is highly recommended that attendees reserve a matchmaking session in advance.
