The Primary Purpose of the B2B Network - phase one
To serve as a type of liaison and vetting service-provider for the local banks and corporations who provide critical services to small businesses and nonprofits.
To be able to reach, serve and communicate with the minority sector of the community that is historically not served by the larger institutions and corporations.
To counsel, to legalize and to legitimize this group of small business owners and nonprofits.
Many are very small businesses, churches, entrepreneurs, sports teams, groups and performing artists etc.
ABOUT THE NETWORK MEMBERS - phase one
In 2020, upon witnessing hundreds of small businesses and organizations missing-out on the COVID EIDL funding sources, the Carolina Business to Business Network began assisting the new and struggling “very” small businesses with structuring themselves and their business practices so that they can qualify for the various local resources.
This project has transitioned into a viable long-term solution for new and very small business owners, nonprofits and groups who does not possess the ability, the skillset or the time to take advantage of the professional local resources that are available to them.
Many of these business owners stem from certain cultures or mindsets who has adapted to operating without the proper tools and business practices and many times, illegally from their homes or substandard facilities.
The Carolina B2B’s primary goal is to coach these small business owners in a way that will position them for long-term success, which often-time requires our team to bring theses services and opportunities to them in their neighborhoods.
Many in this first group traditionally, has not embraced the value or the necessity of the expanded business services that your company provides to the community. The B2B network will serve as a “type” of liaison and communication between this group of new and small businesses and nonprofits and your company.
The network provides a financial platform that allows our members to purchase from corporations as a group.
The corporations pay a fee for the guaranteed group contracts and purchasing minimums each month. Fees that are collected from the corporations are paid-out to the participating network members.
The funds the members receive must be expended exclusively from the PC Debit Card and platforms with the contracted corporations.

The Pitch Television Show
The tv show is the network's creative platform to promote the small businesses and our partners and our way to communicate with the community and the World. Steps are in being taken to air The Pitch Television Show on the three major local television networks (ABC, NBC, CBS affiliates and worldwide online) and Taped at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center.
The Purpose of the Network and The Pitch Television Show:
To Establish, To Strengthen, To Restore, and To Expand 100 hundred local small businesses and nonprofits per year through the Pitch Television Project. Partnering with local professionals in order to strengthen and maintain a strong and thriving local economy through our individual communities and families.
GROUP PURCHASING PROJECT
The Carolina B2B Network is currently working on a group-purchasing project with the local corporations.
Despite the unconventional ways and means of doing business and the unreported or untaxed money that is made and spent millions of dollars are still being spent in the local community to the major corporations and utilities by this group.
The pre-paid debit card industry is a multibillion dollar industry largely due of this sector of the community.
The network's primary purpose is to legalize and legitimize and give voice and leverage to them through this group purchasing network.
Individually, 90% of this group of members has a monthly operation's budget just over $5,000 and less than $100,000 per year. However, (collectively, purchasing together) through the Carolina B2B Network platforms and website, this group will spend $3.7 Million dollars per month and over forty five million dollars this year ($45,000,000).
