Small businesses in Bergen, Hudson and Essex counties that are owned by minorities and/or women, take note: The 2014 NY/NJ Super Bowl Host Committee for the Meadowlands event is launching a “Business Connect” initiative designed to try to help minorities- and women-owned businesses get into “the game.”
Companies in those counties or in the New York City metro area can participate in a series of educational workshops that will include “networking sessions with the business community, NFL contractors, Host Committee staff and local government agencies.”
The first Business Connect workshop is Wed., Nov. 28 from 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm at New York University’s Skirball Center in lower Manhattan at 566 LaGuardia Place.
Other details to know:
Advance registration is required and can be completed at www.nynjsuperbowl.com . Attendees will be able to learn how to become MBE/WBE certified.
Approved business will be listed in an online guide that will be a central resource for procuring certain Super Bowl-related products and services. The initiative is accepting applicants until April 30, with the guide to be published next May.
