What is the Ohio Business Matchmaker?
The Ohio Business Matchmaker 2013 event is a unique opportunity where exhibitors, purchasing agents (buyers), trainers, and small business owners (suppliers) come together.
In 2012 nearly 1,000 small business owners who represented small, minority, service-disabled veteran-owned, veteran-owned, HUBZone, women-owned businesses and purchasing representatives from city, state, county, and federal agencies, along with prime contractors representing a combined purchasing budget totaling hundreds of millions of dollars in opportunities attended.
Interested small business owners or "suppliers" and buyers registering for the event will need to provide the appropriate NAICS codes in order to be properly matched. Identify your NAICS code(s) by performing a keyword search here.
Each 10 minute meeting will be scheduled and timed, during which suppliers and buyers will have the opportunity to discuss one another's specific projects and capabilities.
In addition to one-on-one matchmaking meetings, this event will offer exhibitors networking opportunities and workshops covering current topics vital to small business success such as Selling to the State of Ohio, Doing Business with Federal Government Prime Contractors, SBA Policy Updates, Export Financing with ExIm Bank, and Beyond the Basics of Oil and Gas.
