HP Teams With Non-Profit To Help Small Businesses

HP said today it is working with Business Matchmaking, a not-for-profit corporation supporting procurement opportunities for small businesses, to launch the 2011 Business Matchmaking event series.

 Business Matchmaking provides opportunities for small businesses to secure contracts from federal, state and local government agencies, as well as many Fortune 500 companies at key events and through an online network. In addition, the program offers education, training, counseling and resources.

Through regional events held across the country, and in online sessions, Business Matchmaking has enabled more than 77,000 small business sales appointments resulting in more than $8 billion in contracts granted. All events are free to both participating small businesses and representative buyers.

“HP is dedicated to enabling small businesses beyond technology with alliances, webinars, social forums, blogs and training to help them manage and grow their business,” said Michael Nordstrom, manager, Small and Medium Business Marketing – Americas, HP.

“As a flagship sponsor for the past eight years, we continue to support Business Matchmaking because it successfully provides small businesses new opportunities to help them thrive.”
