MEDC’s Pure Michigan Business Connect (PMBC) facilitates connections between global buyers and Michigan suppliers across virtually any industry. Whether it’s a niche capability or a broader product or service offering, PMBC provides opportunities for all business sizes to access new and untapped markets.
Here are four Michigan businesses who found opportunity in unexpected places:
"I am grateful to PMBC for the continued support and recognition of Michigan's growing small businesses. PMBC not only strives, but actually succeeds in building solid connections between Michigan businesses, creating a mutually beneficial ecosystem for our economy to grow and thrive in.” - Rita Shelley, Cheeky Spices
Strategic Visionary Solutions
Strategic Visionary Solutions is a service-disabled veteran-owned business providing a nano-technology coating product that brings asset protection and long-term reduction of maintenance costs on protective surfaces. While SVS traditionally serves customers in industrial, marine, fleet, and oil and gas markets, through the 2020 PMBC Supplier Diversity in Higher Education event and the recent West Michigan Public Purchasing Alliance (WMPPA) Reverse Trade Fair event, CEO Dennis Haag was selected for meetings with higher education, municipal and county purchasers.
“PMBC events have enabled us to meet with a variety of different businesses in many areas that we would not typically market our product line to. We have found niche markets and opportunities that we had not realized their potential and opened up new markets that complement us with our future customers.” - Dennis Haag, Strategic Visionary Solutions
