CHARLOTTE, N.C. –Carolinas-Virginia Minority Supplier Development Council and Millennium Magazine announced a new strategic partnership in October 2014 to support and promote minority businesses through enhanced media activities and promotional content. Leveraging their respective networks and publishing platforms, the two organizations will assist and encourage minority entrepreneurial development; work to increase minority business ownership; expand procurement opportunities for minority-owned companies; assist in developing beneficial business climates and relationships; and publish news, information and opportunities that support minority business development.
Calvin Reese, president and founder of Millennium Magazine said, “There is strong synergy between the work of the Carolinas-Virginia Council and Millennium Magazine to strengthen and support economic development and wealth creation for minority businesses. The opportunity to collaborate with CVMSDC will expand our breadth and reach to support business growth for minority companies.”
