The Small Business Center

About the Small Business Center

The Small Business Center (SBC) at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College is at the heart of small business resources in Concord, Kannapolis, Salisbury and surrounding towns. Whether you want to start a small business or grow an existing business, the SBC can help you develop a plan and connect you with vital resources for your journey.

Our goal is simple — to help help start and grow our local small business community through business counseling, entrepreneurial education and connection to resources. 

Small Business Center programs and services are sponsored by the Small Business Center Network (SBCN) of the North Carolina Community College System. The SBCN assists in starting an average of more than 600 businesses each year. Centers have an economic impact in all 100 North Carolina counties, helping create and retain an average of 4,750 jobs annually.
