Business Matchmaking, made possible through a cosponsorship between the SBA, SCORE and HP, matches small businesses with buyers from the corporate sector as well as local, state and federal governments.

This online resource will offer web-based educational tools including the Virtual Business Matchmaking workshop, monthly webinars featuring procurement and supplier diversity experts, access to important downloads of articles and links to helpful resources. "Business Matchmaking has been a tremendous success over the past three years and I am very pleased to see the initiative con- tinue to grow in 2006," said SBA Administrator Hector V. Barreto.
