Connect ⇒ Partner ⇒ Grow

We are focused on facilitating connections with new markets and emerging businesses primed for certification and the capacity and capability for growth. 

Join us onsite in Baltimore to connect with buyers or MBEs with business opportunities, receive consultation, or get access to capital. 

If you have registered for previous matchmakers, log in to the portal (a unique discount code will be provided in your conference confirmation email to register complimentary) to receive a link to update your profile. You can select from one or more opportunities: connect with buyers, receive/provide consultation, access to capital, or connect with MBEs.

If you have not registered for previous matchmakers, create an account in the portal and fill out your profile (a unique discount code will be provided in your conference confirmation email to register complimentary).
