Companies and government agencies that subcontract products and services should attend the Connecticut Business Matchmaker 2020 to make new connections with small businesses and contractors.

The event is set for May 28 from 8 am to 2:30 pm at the University of Hartford, 200 Bloomfield Ave., West Hartford.

Through a series of 10-minute, one-on-one interviews, companies and agencies can quickly identify potential partnerships with small businesses and make new business connections.

The U.S. Small Business Administration is a partner in this event.

Prime registration for this event is now open.

Primes include prime/general contractors, medium- to large-sized companies, state and federal government agencies, municipalities, educational institutions, and others that subcontract services and/or supplies.

Small business registration opens April 13.

To participate, your company must meet the small business guidelines set by federal, state, and municipal standards.

Free pre-event workshops will be offered in April and May. Small businesses are encouraged to join the Business Matchmaker email list to get the latest information on registration, event preparation, and more.
