PRLog - Jan. 19, 2013 - MONTVALE, N.J. -- The 2014 Super Bowl Host Committee’s Business Connect initiative will hold a series of educational workshops to provide best practice information to local MWBEs and inform them about potential Super Bowl-related procurement opportunities. The workshops, which will be held throughout the region, will also include networking sessions with the business community, NFL contractors, Host Committee staff and local government agencies.

The first Business Connect workshop will be held on November 28, from 4:30 to 6:30 pm, at NYU’s Skirball Center, 566 LaGuardia Place. Any business may participate in the workshop, but advance registration is required and can be completed at www.nynjsuperbowl.com. Attendees will be able to learn how to become MBE/WBE certified.

“Minority and woman owned businesses are critical contributors to our local and regional economy,” said Kelly. “As such, we are thrilled to provide the maximum opportunity for each to participate in the 2014 Super Bowl procurement process, and supply them with the required information to seek bids. We hope this knowledge and advice also will help them grow their business even after the Super Bowl.”

“Our 10,000 Small Businesses program has taught us that providing entrepreneurs with business education and networking helps drive economic growth and job creation,” said Dina Powell, President of the Goldman Sachs Foundation. “We are proud to partner with the Business Connect initiative to further our shared goal of bringing new opportunities to small businesses in the New York / New Jersey region.”

To participate in the Business Connect initiative, businesses must have the M/WBE Certification as a for-profit regardless of size, and be located in the New York City metropolitan area or northern New Jersey (Bergen, Hudson or Essex Counties).
