Posted in: Employers, Events, News

The Connecticut Business Leadership Network is pleased to announce that it has become a publicity sponsor for CT Business Matchmaker Event held by the University of Hartford Entrepreneurial Center.

Since deciding to sponsor this event, I have spoken to several people who have connected with great contracts or even new employment through the contacts made at the Matchmaker. We are very excited to be a part of an event which has helped so many businesses and individuals reach their goals. 

The Matchmaker Event will take place from 7:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on June 1, 2017 at Genrgras Student Union at the University of Hartford. 

This event is an opportunity for Prime attendees to connect with potential suppliers including disability and minority owned businesses during a series of 10 minute 1 on 1 interviews. 

Prime participants include large and medium-sized companies, federal and state agencies, municipalities and educational institutions. Registration is free for Prime attendees. 

Small established businesses, including disability owned businesses, can take advantage of this opportunity to open the door to contracts and more by presenting your products to Prime contractors, government agencies and municipalities in the 10 minute 1 to 1 presentations as described above. It is also a great opportunity to network with other small businesses. 

Tickets for small businesses can be purchased at at $70.00 until May 23rd and $85.00 until the day of the event and at the door. You can sign up for up to 5 Matchmaker appointments immediately following online registration. Please note: no refunds or substitutions are allowed. 

CTBLN has become a sponsor as part of its supply chain diversity initiative as part of the USBLN’s efforts to open up opportunities for disability owned businesses through the USBLN Disability Owned Business Certification which is being accepted by a continually growing number of contracting entities.
