Resource Connection

We can provide you with multiple resources to help you start, grow and build your business. As you plan a new business venture or expand on an existing one, it is important to be involved in your local community.

Contacting county government agencies, local municipalities, your Chamber of Commerce, etc., for requirements regarding permits, licenses, and local ordinances will be an easy process once you visit your local Small Business Center.

The Small Business Center is also a resource in assisting with business compliance at the state and national level.

Counseling appointments may be scheduled electronically with the SBC Director at (704) 991-0182. Get the latest information on how we can help you in your business endeavors at no cost to you!
