Small Business Matchmaker 2023

May 3, 2023 @ 7:00 am - 11:00 am EDT


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

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

The annual Small Business Matchmaker event has returned to Buffalo after a three-year hiatus. From 8AM until 11 AM on May 3, you will 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” meetings with buyers (sign-ups for appointments begins at 7AM 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 looking for qualified, reputable firms to buy the products and services they need to fulfill government procurement needs as well as build their supply chains. This can be your ticket to small business success! Don’t miss this once-a-year chance to pitch your business to interested buyers.

Join us for one of our webinar or in-person Pre-Matchmaker training sessions in April that will guide you through preparing your materials, conducting market research, creating your Capability Statement and presentation/follow-up.

Also, new this year at Matchmaker on May 3, learn how SBA’s Mentor Protégé Program can take your business to the next level from successful participants at the “Mentor Protégé Roundtable”.
