For ME Networking Group kicked off its first meeting in February 2021. For ME 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 promising or aspiring 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 PBMares, LLP.
The For ME Networking Group is open to the public and meets on the first Wednesday of each month at 6:15 p.m. in the Bryant Student Center on the Carteret CC Campus.
