with the collaboration of the

American Supplier Initiative B2B Matchmaking Event:
“Puerto Rico is Open for Business”

August 17, 2015
Puerto Rico Convention Center

This matchmaking and educational event fosters the competitiveness of small businesses across U.S. jurisdictions, facilitating their access to both federal and commercial supply chains, and increasing their opportunities for small businesses by:

    (1) ensuring small businesses have the capital, opportunities, skills and capabilities to become part of private sector and federal supply chains;

    (2) helping large corporations redesign processes to enable more small businesses become part of their supply chains;

    (3) connecting small businesses and large corporations / federal entities to identify supply chain opportunities.

Studies show that when small companies diversify their businesses and gain access to supply chain opportunities, their revenues increase by more than 250 percent and their employment increases by 150 percent.

Join us and register before July 31, 2015 to attend the panels and workshops on how to do business with the Federal Government and Corporate America, and to potentially be matched with federal and private entities. LIMITED SPACES AVAILABLE. Companies that obtain a matchmaking confirmation will be contacted by My Business Matches (MBM), the company tasked with the matchmaking process through its online platform.
