Corporate Pairing Events are on ongoing events used to support small businesses in identifying industrial giants who are in need to fulfilling their goals.
Match making sessions are organized to connect small businesses within specific industries with Prime Contracts and major firms. The “Meet the Primes” sessions are conducted via virtual meetings as well as face to face sessions.
Virtual Training and Presentation Sessions – E-learning sessions that engage the audience by allowing learners to be a part an active part of the session. The audience can make comments in the chatbox and the presenter can respond.
One-to-One Introduction Meetings – An opportunity to speak directly with a representative from a prime company or government agency that has identified sub-CONTRACTing needs for their current and upcoming projects. One-on-one meetings with Prime Contracts can really be an important time for you to get to know more about upcoming projects and understand the requirements.
Company-Specific Informational Interviews – We provide companies with informal informational interviews for a specified time to either chat via video or via typing before being moved to the next virtual “room.” These events offer a low-stakes way to learn about a potential company or industry and get the subCONTRACT’s name out to potential clients.
Industry-Specific Speaking Engagements – Our networking events have a speaker or speakers on a topic directly related to your industry. These engagements can happen remotely or in person. Individuals can take advantage of the speaker’s knowledge and expertise.
Networking Meetups – Our meetups allow for more of a relaxed atmosphere—making small talk and approaching strangers is simpler in a casual environment. The networking meetup can be in person or virtual.
Roundtable Events – The Roundtables are beneficial to those looking to advance their knowledge by communicating with their peers. Roundtables allow for open forums and discussions that, more often than not, lead to creative ideas and new directions. If you’re stuck on a project or proposal, these are great events for brainstorming and making some new connections in the meantime.
