Ready, Set, GROW! is our signature outreach event. This procurement connections workshop series travels across the state providing insightful information on how to navigate the procurement process and connecting small, minority, women, and veteran-owned businesses with buyers from state agencies. Participants also get to meet with local government buyers and small business resource partners.

Maryland is OPEN for Businesses and this free workshop series is a great networking and business development platform for small businesses that want to do businesses in the government sector.  

Seating is limited and advanced registration is required. We look forward to seeing you!
