USDA Small Business Connections

The Small Business Connections is an outreach program of USDA’s Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization (OSDBU). Each month small businesses are invited to attend a meeting to network, learn from one another and make critical connections to help expand small businesses interactions with USDA.
The Small Business Connections is for your company if:

  • You wish to expand knowledge of USDA’s procurement priorities;
  • You want to network with other small and large businesses; and
  • You desire to build relationships with Small Business Specialists.

The Small Business Connections events take place in the meeting rooms located in the rear of the South Building cafeteria from 9:00 am to 11:30 am. These events are free, and pre-registration is required to attend. Registration is available by clicking the link below.
