CT Business Matchmaker 2019
Thursday, June 13, 7 am - 2:30 pm

Open the Door to Contracts & MoreCT 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 others that subcontract services/supplies) 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.

“The CT Business Matchmaker has allowed me to sit with potential customers that I would not have met in any other venue.” ~Dr. Kevin McGivern, Dufrane Nuclear Shielding, Inc.

“This was a very efficient use of time. The information obtained at the CT Business Matchmaker will save us hundreds of hours of marketing work.” ~Kathleen and Jon Russell, SafeStart Systems LLC
