H-E-B will be hosting an event to help small businesses learn about the opportunities with H-E-B and the resources that are available to help them grow. The Opportunity Exchange and Expo will be held on Thursday, November 3, 2022.

This event is put on by the H-E-B Supplier Diversity Team and it is the 12th annual and third virtual Opportunity Exchange and Expo. The theme for 2022 Opportunity Exchange and Expo is Growing in Community: Driven by Ownership with a focus on I.D.E.A.: Innovation/Invest, Develop/Discovery, Education, and Acceleration.

The 2022 virtual Opportunity Exchange is structured in two parts: the General Session, where Small, Minority, Woman, Disabled, LGBTQ+, and Veteran business owners obtain first-hand knowledge from H-E-B's Leadership across all lines of business on doing business with H-E-B. The Second Session, where Suppliers and Vendors will also hear from current H-E-B Suppliers and Community Partners regarding resources and opportunities available in certifying, capital funding, and accelerating their business for scalability into a large retailer.

H-E-B believes that its suppliers should be as diverse as our customers. They are proud to have a supplier diversity program that ensures selling goods and utilizing services from a wide variety of businesses. As a former small business, they recognize and celebrate the value that small businesses, local businesses, and minority-, women-, LGBT-, veteran-, and disabled-owned businesses bring to the marketplace.

This year’s OpEx includes a virtual Expo, where businesses can submit a video to include information about their companies. Participation is optional.
