Business Meet-Ups are short business meetings designed to introduce your firm to a new business partner or opportunity.

  For CUCF, architecture, engineering and construction MWBEs/SDVOBs can register for a 10-minute meeting.
  For CUNY vendors and suppliers, Business Meet-Ups are limited to five (5)minutes per firm. 
  Firms are encouraged to maximize their CUNY and CUCF Diversity@Work Business Meet-Up by demonstrating a unique approach or presenting a specific value (or value-add) on products and/or services that CUNY should consider in future procurements.

Very limited space is available. Registration is on a first come, first serve basis and only open to NYS-certified NYS MWBEs and SDVOBs. If you pre-registered for this opportunity, you will have received a confirming email to confirm the time and location. Check by the information desk today to see if there are any appointments still available.  


The goal of the CUCF Diversity@Work Business Meet-Up is to give you an opportunity to meet CUCF and its contractors, as well as others who can help you identify new business opportunities for your firm.

Be sure to bring your capability statement or company brochure and business card to leave with your prospects. All CUCF Business Meet-Ups will take place in the Shiva Gallery, Lower Level 3.


The goal of CUNY’s Diversity@Work Business Meet-Up is for NYS-certified MWBEs and SDVOBs to pitch their product offerings and services directly to our Central Office and campus end-users in the following three categories.

  Building/Property Maintenance
  Information Technology 
  Marketing, Design, Promotion

All confirmed and pre-scheduled MWBE/SDVOB participants will receive a one-page synopsis of the current and future needs that our CUNY decision-makers are currently seeking to fulfill.

If you haven’t submitted your capability statement or company brochure at the time of registration, be sure to bring it so that our decision-makers can review them.
