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.

Please join us on Thursday, November 20th from 9:00 AM – 11:30 AM to learn about the opportunities for small businesses with USDA's Rural Development Agency. During this event you will hear from senior program and procurement representatives who will discuss trends that provide insight on Rural Development’s projected FY15 business opportunities.
