Business Matchmaking is returning to California and we invite you to join us!

We will present more opportunities for companies like yours to engage with government agencies and major corporations in pursuit of procurement contracts. Also, there is new information about access to capital for attending companies.
More than 125 senior buyers representing government agencies and major corporations will be in San Jose to meet face-to-face with small business owners selling all kinds of products and services. This is the nation's most successful procurement initiative and has enabled over $6 billion in contracts and some 80,000 one-on-one sessions—all without charge.
Meet buyers from the U.S. Departments of Homeland Security, State, Defense, Treasury and the Interior, together with their state and local government counterparts, representatives of major firms including: HP, Lockheed Martin, American Airlines, Hensel Phelps Construction, and many others.
