Join us for the second annual Houston Business Matchmaker event on Friday, March 5. This virtual event will provide small business owners from all industries the opportunity to connect with prime contractors, large businesses, and local, state, and federal agencies. Over 50 buyers will be available for one-on-one virtual meetings and there is capacity for more than 500 small business suppliers/sellers. Matches are not guaranteed.
Once you have completed your registration, your confirmation email will contain a link to MyBusinessMatches that will allow you to set up your profile for your one-on-one sessions with the buyers. If you do not receive the confirmation email please check your SPAM box.
Small business suppliers/sellers must have a PDF quality Capability Statement, NAICS code/codes, DUNS Number and SAM registration and been in business for at least two years. After registering and paying on this site, small business suppliers/sellers will receive an access code to MyBusinessMatch website where they can upload their capability statement and sign up for matches. Matches are not guaranteed.
During pre-scheduled, one-on-one, 15-minute virtual sessions, small business suppliers/sellers will have the opportunity to demonstrate how they can meet the needs of participating buyers by providing detailed information of their services and capabilities. Matches will be based on buyer requirements and supplier/seller capabilities to ensure quality meetings.
Buyers include governmental agencies (such as the University of Texas at Austin, Port of Houston, Texas Department of Criminal Justice, METRO, and NASA) and large companies (such as Boeing, ExxonMobil Global Services Company, Shell Oil Company, BMC Software Inc., Hewlett Packard, Valor Healthcare Inc., and many more).
