We collaborate with Federal, State and local entities to help business owners get the most current information needed to start and successfully operate their enterprises.
Potential or existing small business owners can take advantage of high quality, readily accessible assistance that includes: Our Center staff understands the unique economic situations of North Carolina’s diverse communities and regions, and they provide services customized to meet those as well as specific business needs.
