There is no vendor fee or cost to participate, but registration is required and space is limited. All businesses are welcome. You do not have to be a minority owned business to be a vendor.
For ME Networking Group kicked off its first meeting in February 2021. This group started through the collaboration of Carteret Community College, DREAM Organization of MHC, and the Small Business Center to empower minority-owned businesses in Carteret County to connect, grow with, and mentor one another. The group works with existing minority-owned businesses and professionals to assist up-and-coming minority entrepreneurs through support, collaboration and mentoring. In its first year, the group received an Excellence Award from the state and was awarded a $10,000 grant by PBMears.
The For ME Networking Group is open to the public and meets on the first Wednesday of the month at 6:15 p.m. in the Bryant Student Center on the Carteret CC Campus.
