What are Access Opportunity Events and how will they benefit my Minority Business Enterprise?
These dynamic meetings are very well attended because they allow Minority Business Enterprises a unique opportunity to connect with the Mountain Plains MSDC’s corporate members as well as representatives from government (state, local, regional, federal) and academic entities.
Corporate members are able to present opportunities for MBEs so that both MBEs and corporations are able to match their contract requirements with the goods and services offered by MBEs. MBEs benefit from a corporate overview for each entity hosting the Access Opportunity Event and thereby learn how to do business with their corporate hosts and, specifically, how to respond to current contract opportunities. They are also introduced to the buyers or representatives of the corporation hosting the event.
Access Opportunity Events differ from networking opportunities in that their focus is on matching current corporate contract needs to MBE goods and services.
