The SBA, SCORE, and HP announced plans to continue the highly successful Business Matchmaking initiative for 2006.
Business Matchmaking matches small businesses with buyers from the corporate sector as well as local, state and federal governments. Since its start in 2003, Business Matchmaking has generated more than 36,000 one-on-one appointments which have resulted in more than $37 million in contracting opportunities for small businesses.
A new initiative has also been added called Business Matchmaking Online Network. Â Â This online resource will offer web-based educational tools including the Virtual Business Matchmaking Workshop, monthly web seminars featuring procurement and supplier diversity experts, access to important downloads of articles and links to helpful resources.
