Share |

Take advantage of the opportunity to grow your business via Private Meetings with Government and Major Corporate Buyers. This event takes place in Santa Clara, CA on Thursday, February 23, 2012.

Small business owners, managers, technologists, and marketing associates are invited to meet 100 buyers from Federal, California, and local government agencies and major corporations to explore opportunities to sell products and services. The SBA Regional Administrator and the area District Director will also provide new information on access to capital and changing small business regulations.

Knowing how busy you are, it is reasonable for you to ask—Why Is This For Me?

WIPP enjoys a special partnership with Business Matchmaking. We will be on site and help to make this a very rewarding experience for you. To date, over 75,000 seller meetings have been enabled resulting in billions of dollars in contracts granted.
