The Phase II Matchmaking sessions focus on discovering cutting-edge technologies that fit acquisition programs’ technology based needs. The expectation involves large and small businesses as well as DoD and other Federal government agencies, taking advantage of this opportunity to discuss commercialization, partnerships, and potential technology transition opportunities that may be available in the next 3-7 years.

The Phase II matchmaking process includes gathering important information from participants including organizational data and technology capabilities and needs. Phase II companies must prepare Quad Charts for each Phase II project to be discussed, and government, large businesses, investors, and manufacturing firms must provide information about their technology needs. Both sets of information are provided through the Matchmaking web site.

This information is used to facilitate over 1,000 one-on-one meetings between small businesses and large organizations based on technology matches. Small businesses can request meetings with prime contractors and government PEO’s and vice versa. Our goal is to make the meetings as beneficial as possible for both parties of interest.

Meetings are 15 minutes and take place during two of the four days of the conference.
