The Annual NH Small Business Matchmaker conference is a joint effort with the U.S. Small Business Administration and the NH Procurement Technical Assistance Center to assist small businesses in pursuing government contracts and winning federal and state contracting dollars. Government contracting Matchmaker events offer intense and cost-effective opportunities for government contractors and small business subcontractors to meet in person. Approximately 200 small business attendees meet face-to-face with representatives from about 30 federal and state agencies and prime contractors. Attendees learn from experts at breakout sessions, network with other businesses, and connect with small business resources at the annual NH Small Business Matchmaker. Evaluation surveys show that relationships are begun and developed at the Matchmakers and that several businesses get contracts over time after connecting with prime contractors and federal agencies at the events.
BAE Systems has been a proud supporter of the NH Small Business Matchmaker for the past several years. We look forward to this event each year as it fulfills its purpose of starting and building relationships with local small businesses.
