The Perfect Partnership Symposium is a forum where women, minority & disadvantaged business owners can connect with private and public entities to create long lasting relationships. We aim to provide participants with successful strategies bringing government & corporate organizations to the table with disadvantaged & minority businesses. We will provide training so business owners know how to identify government & corporate companies suitable for partnership, build long lasting relationships and develop the right proposition that creates a win/win relationship for all parties. This Symposium will address real issues dealing with MBE compliance, small business certification on the federal, state and local levels, working with prime contractors, and learning how to properly offer goods and services to public and private organizations.
200+ Target Participation: To include small business owners, Women & Minority Business Owners, Disadvantaged Business Enterprises. Federal, State and Local government organizations & private corporate companies who have supplier diversity goals.
