Back for its second year, AMP Up! Charlotte is accepting applications for their 2019 cohort. AMP Up! Charlotte is designed to prepare Charlotte-area minority business owners for growth and expansion through business development services, mentoring, targeted training, and access to large corporations for contract and procurement opportunities.
