As the most comprehensive network across the nation in support of the small business ecosystem, funded in part by the Small Business Administration and the Department of Defense, the SBDC/PTACs are focused on serving as the bridge between government agencies, prime contractors, and the small business community; Accordingly, we are continuing our focus on that endeavor with this year’s Matchmaker event.
