Minority Enterprise Development (MED)

MED Week 2019 collage

Welcome to Cape Fear Region Minority Enterprise Development (MED) Week!

October 3rd - October 9th, 2021

In preparation for the 2021 Cape Fear MED Week activities, the planning committee seeks involvement from the vast array of resources within the Cape Fear Region. Individuals who are interested in sharing knowledge and talents to help developing businesses advance to the next level are encouraged to answer and submit the application to the left. Selected presentations will be included among the offerings as part of the Cape Fear Region MED Week activities. The committee anticipates submissions that have a targeted message as well as those that have mass appeal. We encourage submissions that occur throughout the Cape Fear Region as well as activities that occur throughout the day. Ideally, the week will represent a collection of events designed to increase the success of area business owners.

Some examples of previous events associated with MED Week include:

  • The Small Business Coalition Round Table Event
  • Getting Comfortable with Capital Acquisition
  • Social Media and Marketing: Building Your Brand
  • Avoiding HR Nightmares
  • How to Do Business with Local, State and Federal Contractors: A Panel Discussion 

We encourage you to like our page, @CapefearMEDWeek on Facebook, to stay up to date on the events occurring throughout MED Week.

Accommodations for disabilities may be requested by calling 910.962.2691 at least three days prior to the event.
