NC Supplier Connection Hosts Information Workshop

NC Supplier Connection Information Workshop Participants


North Carolina isn’t just the location of one of college basketball’s fiercest rivalries.

It’s also home to the North Carolina Supplier Connection, a partnership between IBM and the Institue to use IBM’s Supplier Connection cloud platform to help drive job creation and business growth in the state.

Shortly after joining the Supplier Connection community, the Institute, an economic development organization aimed at diversifying North Carolina’s business base, hosted its inaugural NC Supplier Connection workshop for small and diverse business owners interested in joining a corporate supply chain.

The workshop introduced attendees to the Supplier Connection platform and provided them with eligibility requirements and instructions on how to register with and navigate the portal.

Five companies attended the Information Workshop, held at the Women’s Business Center of North Carolina in Durham, NC. These firms represented a range of supply chain industries, including facilities support, industrial manufacturing, lab supplier and equipment, and logistics.
