Why attend the Matchmaker?


Small Businesses

The Government & Business Matchmaker matches small businesses with government agencies and prime contractors. At the Matchmaker, businesses will have the opportunity to schedule one-on-one meetings with government agencies and prime contractors about immediate procurement opportunities that match their industry. This one-day event will also host panel discussions and informative workshops. This is an excellent opportunity for minority, woman, veteran, and disadvantaged-owned businesses to network with government agencies, prime contractors, and other firms.


Government Agencies and Prime Contractors

Government agencies and prime contractors will be able to list their upcoming needs, vendor criteria (certifications), and items and services they do not need in advance, and this information will be listed on our website. The businesses attending the Matchmaker will be aware of these specific needs and criteria and will sign up for one-on-one meetings with agencies and primes at the event. The Matchmaker helps government agencies and prime contractors connect with MWBEs, DBEs, Hub Zone, 8(a)s, SDVOBs, VOSBs, EDWOSBs, and WOSBs to meet their procurement goals.
