About the Matchmaker

The NH Small Business Matchmaker brings small businesses together with prime contractors and federal agencies. Its design allows small businesses to meet with targeted prime contractors and government agencies that are looking for small businesses with appropriate services or products to fulfill their government contracts. See the growing list of exhibitors below.

Small business resources are available during the day; several breakout sessions on aspects of government contracting are offered and will be listed here soon.

Registration includes breakfast, lunch and coffee – and networking opportunities abound.

Keynote Speaker 

David Buerle, CEO, Future IQ; Keynote: The New England Regional Defense Industry Collaborative (NERDIC) Effort

NERDIC’s primary goals are 1.) to aid small and midsize businesses in meeting new cybersecurity requirements for businesses participating in the defense industry supply chain, and 2.) to create a trusted supplier network that will make it easier for large defense contractors to locate smaller suppliers that are able to meet their production, certification and process requirements.
