MARKETPLACE 2015: Governor’s Conference on Minority Business Development

October 22, 2015 - October 23, 2015

Wisconsin State Capitol
Are you ready to start or grow your business in Wisconsin? Each year, MARKETPLACE helps minority, women and veteran-owned company representatives learn about doing business with state, federal and local agencies as well as corporations. These markets represent billions of dollars of annual purchasing with special programs to include minority, women, veteran and disadvantaged businesses. 

Meet with potential buyers, identify funding sources, connect with business assistance resources and build their capacity at MARKETPLACE. 

What to Expect

The first day features FREE workshops on contracting processes, contract management and certification programs followed by an evening networking reception. The second day begins with a breakfast program before opening the Expo Hall with one-on-one buyer meetings and booths of small businesses, resource providers, government agencies, lenders and others. An award luncheon recognizes the achievements of MBE, WBE and DVB firms as well as those recognized by the Wisconsin Department of Administration and other agencies. The afternoon continues by reopening the Expo Hall where short seminars on a range of capacity building topics are offered throughout the day.
