Wanted: Women business owners Featured

9:50am EDT July 22, 2002

It’s not every day that purchasing agents for large corporations come looking for your company. More often than not, it’s a struggle just to get your product in front of the right decision makers.

Connection 2000 turns that usual notion on its head, but it’s aimed at one specific segment of the business world — women-owned businesses. The event, sponsored by the National Association of Women Business Owners, is slated for Oct. 21 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Ameritech’s corporate headquarters, 6889 Snowville Road.

The procurement fair will provide female business owners with the unique opportunity to sell their goods and services to purchasing agents of major corporations, government agencies and health care institutions who are looking to expand their supplier base of female-owned businesses.

Fair admission is $45 for NAWBO members, $65 for nonmembers. For more information, contact NAWBO at 676-9262.
