Networking Event Helps Minority, Women-Owned and Small Businesses Connect with Prime Contractors

Sometimes small businesses and those owned by women and minorities can find it challenging to connect with larger, more established companies with whom they could sub-contract on government projects.

Baltimore County government and their partners are hosting a free “Meet the Primes” networking event to help facilitate those mutually beneficial business relationships.

The 7th annual “Meet the Primes” event will take place on Wednesday, October 14, from 8 a.m. to noon, at the Maryland State Fairgrounds, Timonium Exhibition Hall, located at 2200 York Road in Lutherville-Timonium, Maryland 21093. The event is co-hosted by Baltimore County, Baltimore County Public Schools, Baltimore County Public Library, the Community College of Baltimore County, the Washington Metropolitan Council of Governments and theBaltimore Regional Cooperative Purchasing Committee.

The purpose of this “free” event is to facilitate a networking forum for prime contractors to expand their pool of potential subcontractors to fulfill participation subcontracting goals set in contracts. The exhibiting contractors are asked to come prepared to discuss potential upcoming subcontracting opportunities. Subcontractors are encouraged to come prepared to market their skills and abilities with a one-page capability statement that readily identifies past government and commercial work experience in their specialty area of expertise as well as certifications and specialized licenses obtained. There will be more than 100 exhibitors and over 300 women-owned, minority-owned and other small businesses in attendance.
