The SBA St. Louis District Office requests your participation in the upcoming matchmaking event for veterans and service-disabled veterans. The format for the veteran matchmaking event is as follows: * Each veteran-owned business will have approximately 8-10 minutes to pitch/speak/market their business to the federal contracting audience, utilizing PowerPoint or any type of communication you choose. During this time, the contracting audience will be allowed to ask specific questions about the product or service in this open forum format. * The veteran will close their individual session by delivering their contact information. Your participation is vital to the success of this event. The premise of this matchmaking event is to provide veterans a personal marketing opportunity to the federal government. Please RSVP to Gary Alexander by Thursday, August 22, 2014 at firstname.lastname@example.org or 314-539-6612. If you know of another contracting officer or small business specialist that may be interested in this event, please pass along this flyer. Reasonable arrangements for persons with disabilities will be made if requested at least two weeks in advance. Contact Gary Alexander at email@example.com or 314-539-6612.
