2022 Tri-State Small Business Virtual Training and Matchmaking Summit Forms


Buyer In-take Form
*This form is only for Tri-State Buyers. The Supplier Application will open on March 28, 2022, check back here then if you are a supplier wishing to request a meeting with buyers.

Welcome to the buyer intake form for the 2022 Tri-State Small Business Virtual Training and 
Matchmaking Summit.

We hope you will join the PTACs of Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio and invite you to complete this Buyer Intake form for the 2022 Tri-State Small Business Virtual Training and Matchmaking Summit.  

In order for us to find qualified suppliers for your needs, we need help identifying what it is you will be looking to source from Michigan, Ohio and Indiana suppliers. To do so we’ve created the online Buyer Intake form. 

If you do not already have an account with Pure Michigan Business Connect (PMBC), you will be prompted to complete an account/profile for your company. It is through this account creation that we will be able to recommend suppliers for you to meet with during the Tri-State Virtual Matchmaker.

If you already have an account, or after you’ve created your new account, you will be asked to provide your procurement needs. To fill in your purchasing needs, type in each specific need on a separate line. We hope you can enter at least 5-10 needs. The specific information you provide for each need allows the PMBC team to filter the supplier applications effectively and recommend those most likely to be a good fit for your open needs. Once the supplier application closes on April 28, 2022, you will be prompted to log back into your PMBC account and select which buyers you’d like to meet with. From there, PMBC will create a schedule, that you have complete control of.

If you have any questions or concerns, please let PTAC or PMBC know. The sooner we receive your needs, the more time PTAC has to research and attract qualified potential suppliers for your needs. We’d like to receive your needs by Friday, March 25, 2022.

Please reach out to Tanya Markos-Vanno at markos-vannot@michigan.org if you have any questions on how your company should be participating.
