CT Business Matchmaker has been connecting small businesses with government contract and subcontracting opportunities since 2010.

The CT Business Matchmaker, an annual event since 2010, offers an invaluable opportunity for small to large businesses committed to expanding their government contract and subcontracting opportunities. At the event, small businesses meet with Primes (including large and medium-sized companies, municipalities, government agencies, and educational institutions) to present their products and services in a series of 10 minute one-on-one interviews. This winning process allows Primes and Small Businesses to quickly identify potential partnerships.

See photos on Facebook from the 2016 event.
