On the Menu: Opportunities for Minority & Women-Owned Businesses in NC
Sponsored by Barnes & Thornburg LLP
Do you identify as a minority or woman-owned business? If so, this workshop is for you! At this month’s On the Menu session, gain insight on the programs, grants and initiatives that exist in North Carolina to support your business. Some of the items that we’ll cover include:
• Statewide Supplier Diversity Initiatives – HUB Program
• Certification Requirements
• Small Business Impact Grants
• Business Development and Trainings
• Andrea Harris Task Force
Already aware of the opportunities listed above but just need to take action? At the end of our session, we will have time for you to apply to these opportunities and utilize our session leader, Tammie Hall, as a resource for any questions that come up along the way.
After this session, you will have a better understanding of supplier diversity and the value it adds to the supply chain. In addition, we hope you will leave feeling equipped to take full advantage of the resources available for your business!
In an effort to keep this event accessible, we will be offering a hybrid experience for participants. When checking out, be mindful to select between an “In-Person Ticket” and a “Zoom Ticket”. For those attending in person, we will be providing a safe, sanitized space. For those not located in NC or remaining cautious, we welcome you to join us over zoom.

What’s On The Menu?
At Frontier RTP, we are constantly growing, and hope you will come along for the ride! We developed On the Menu as a way of helping you and your business grow to the next level, whatever that next level may be.
Each month, we offer a lunchtime workshop on a special topic related to small businesses or startups. On the Menu is taught by a diverse group of experts from around the Triangle (some of whom started their business here at Frontier RTP!) in a small group setting.
Our hope is that these workshops will not only be rich in content, but spark dialogue, start relationships, and make your lunch break meaningful. Did we mention there will be food? For those joining us in-person, there will be a free lunch available. If you are joining us virtually, we invite you to bring your lunch to the Zoom. No shame in eating with your camera on!
We want you to easily access our events and webinars. Feel free to reach out to us with accommodation requests at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll do our best to facilitate.
