Empowering Small Business: A Matchmaking Event

This event qualifies for 1.5 CLPs

To create a forum that fosters interaction and knowledge sharing between small businesses, government officials, industry experts, and large/ prime businesses.

Access to Government Contracts: Educate attendees on how to access government contracts and procurement opportunities, outlining steps and processes for participation.

Education and Awareness: Inform small business owners about available government resources, and support programs tailored to aid their growth.

Advocacy and Feedback: Enable a platform for small business owners to share feedback and concerns, allowing government representatives to understand their needs better and refine policies accordingly.

Networking Opportunities: Facilitate dialogue and connections between small businesses and large/prime businesses, government representatives, and industry experts to encourage collaboration and partnerships.


This conference is ideal for small business owners, particularly those that are either new entrants into the government contracting space or who have acquired a government master contract, but have yet to win business. In addition, anyone looking to navigate government resources, expand their network, and gain insights into leveraging government initiatives for business growth.
