Running a small business is not easy for sure, but the City of Charlotte has done a lot of things to attempt to help many businesses out in various ways.

There is a program called NXTCLT. This is an awesome program. It’s designed to mentor small minority-owned businesses when it comes to private sector development projects. If you own an SBE firm, this could be something great for you. The other bonus with this is those firms that successfully complete the program qualify for a $15,000 grant. This could not only shape your business operationally but also major financial assistance. There are a few business requirements to participate. Click here to apply and see those requirements.
