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 of action for lasting success.

Our goal is simple — to provide high quality small business education and relevant, comprehensive assistance to you. Programs and services of the Small Business Center are sponsored by the Small Business Center Network (SBCN) of the North Carolina Community College System.

The NC Community Colleges Small Business Center Network assists in starting an average of more than 600 businesses each year. Small Business Centers have an economic impact in 90% of all NC Counties each year, helping to create and retain nearly 3,000 jobs annually.
