We’ve Done the Research
So You Won’t Have To.

SC MBDA has created a Task Force called Amplify. As the name suggests, Amplify, is here to make louder and stronger the needs of minority enterprises through COVID-19 and beyond.  Amplify is a diverse group of forward-thinking business, government, and financial influencers from the North and South Carolina. 

Together, we are identifying strategies and policy recommendations to help you increase capital, infrastructure, technology, and market opportunities for minority businesses.

Feel free to contact us via email, for more business or financial and business development assistance. 

These programs are constantly changing with new deadlines, revisions, and some completions.
