2024 Small Business Matchmaker

Is your small business interested in selling to Federal, State, or local Government agencies and prime contractors? Would you like the opportunity to meet with the procurement officers of many of these organizations at one place in a single day?

Well, the SBA District office and SCORE Buffalo Niagara have exciting news for you!

The annual Small Business Matchmaker event is happening again. From 8 AM to Noon on May 1st, you'll be able to meet one-on-one, in-person with dozens of procurement representatives from government agencies and prime contractors. The format allows for scheduling short "Speed Dating" meeting with the buyers (sign-ups for appointments begins at 7 AM on the day of the event), so that small businesses can introduce themselves, their products/services and interests in doing business.

Government agencies and prime contractors are required by law to buy from small businesses. They are looking for qualified, reputable firms to buy the products and services they need to fulfill procurement needs as well as build their supply chains. This can be your ticket to small business success! Don't miss this one-a-year chance to pitch your business to interested buyers.
