A group of local young entrepreneurs and college students has developed the Carolina Business to Business Network and The Pitch Television Show.
These two projects will provide critical funding and resources for groups of 500 small businesses and nonprofits who has annual revenues and budgets under $150,000.
Individually, each B2B member has a monthly operation's budget just under $7,000 and less than $100,000 per year. However, (collectively. purchasing together) through the Carolina B2B Network, this group will spend $3.7 Million dollars per month and over forty five million this year ($45,000,000).
The Carolina Business to Business Network's primary responsibility is to maintain group-corporate contracts, industry-specific service providers and a niche-based pool of customers and clients for each member.
Through the network, each member is also contracted to spend-monies with each other, guaranteeing each member a minimum of 499 guaranteed clients.
The B2B Network pays each member through the group purchasing contracts and online transaction fees that are generated from the corporate contracts.
The group of 500 will serve as guaranteed vetted clients and customers for the Carolina B2B Network's corporate partners, service providers and sponsors such as your company. The network will make it possible for the group to receive the best services and products available by purchasing as a group.

Funding Solutions for Carolina Small Businesses & Nonprofits
Dear business leader,
You are invited to join this passionate group of local business and community leaders who are and has been dedicated to improving our local communities and economies.
The director of the Carolina Business to Business Network has thirty seven years of hands-on experience starting, developing, strengthening and working with over ten thousand small businesses, nonprofits and churches.
The owner, is well known for serving hundreds of fortune five hundred corporations and many national agencies with creative services and solutions (in audio-visual & multimedia) for their events and presentations.
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 that 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.
This 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 3500 network members.
The funds the members receive must be expended exclusively from the PC Debit Card and platforms with the contracted corporations.
Our goal, at this time: 1) to simply determine an amount your company will sponsor The Pitch Television Show for every one hundred vetted small businesses and organizations that the network refers to your company.
2) To determine a time for your company to present your services to this group (at one of the business incubators).
All current and potential members are watching and waiting for a response and a presentation from your bank.
Your company receives your new accounts before you make any payments or provide any services to the members. The network is currently grouping and determining the specific types of services and levels that are required. The network will vet and prepare each small business (organization) and the owner(s) for your services (the network serves as a guaranteed client-pool of 3500 small businesses and organizations for your company).
Happy surveying and funding!
