The PMBC Process – The Three Approaches

Once your business reaches out to PMBC, our specialists will get in touch with you to inquire about your specific needs and identify supply chain opportunities. To assist this process, PMBC has developed three customizable, time-saving approaches: targeted searches, matchmaking initiatives and the B2B network. Learn more about our three approaches below.

Targeted Searches

  1. Companies with procurement needs or joint venture interests connect with PMBC
  2. Based on their needs, PMBC conducts a thorough search of the Michigan Database
  3. Then, a list of qualified Michigan companies is compiled
  4. The PMBC customized results are sent out to be reviewed by purchasers/investors
  5. Purchasers/investors reach out to companies of interest to pursue new opportunities

Matchmaking Initiatives

  1. Purchasers contact PMBC with all their business needs
