Pure Michigan Business Connect (PMBC), a public-private initiative developed by the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC), connects Michigan companies with opportunities to help them grow and expand. By participating in the program, companies can find procurement resources to expand their supply chain, find new business opportunities, access a new business-to-business network and receive business assistance at little to no cost like legal, accounting, and other services.
The PMBC business-to-business (B2B) network links Michigan companies with collaborators and private sector procurement opportunities. Companies such as DTE Energy and Consumers Energy have made major commitments to increase their procurement spending. Other companies are signing on with similar commitments. In addition, MEDC is working to recruit out-of-state businesses to explore supply chain opportunities with Michigan businesses. The system will enable posting of procurement opportunities, collaboration needs, and unique offers available to Michigan business accounts. As the B2B network grows, it will allow registered small businesses to use the system to support purchasing needs as well. Companies in the system can be both buyers and sellers in a truly dynamic online B2B marketplace. The B2B portal is free to all Michigan businesses. Learn more about the program and register for the B2B system at www.puremichiganb2b.com.
