Although this is the second year My Business Matches teams with Centro Unido de Detallistas de Puerto Rico to execute a business matchmaking session, it will be the first year the business results are tracked.
“It is not enough to put buyer and supplier together and hope business results emerge,” said Jeff Vigil, President and CEO of My Business Matches. It is critical to track the outcome of the business matchmaking meetings and report tangible statistics, such as how many contracts were awarded 30, 60, 90 and 180 days post event, the dollar amounts associated with the awarded contracts, and the number of new jobs created.”
“We want to make Puerto Rico a business hub for the Caribbean,” said Ignacio Veloz, immediate past president of CUD. “My vision is to bring hundreds of buyers to Puerto Rico and match them with qualified local Caribbean suppliers. Our businesses are capable and will deliver the quality goods and services buyers are seeking. Together, Centro Unido de Detallistas with My Business Matches are a force that can elevate Puerto Rico to the business center it has the potential to become.”
Future business matchmaking sessions in Puerto Rico are tentatively scheduled for the first quarter in 2013. Visit http://www.MyBusinessMatches.com for a list of other upcoming events.
