These are the types of questions that are fueling the Triangle as a launchpad for start-ups. Because we are so thankful for the entrepreneurial spirit, here are some of the many local entrepreneurial resources:
North Carolina Lawyers for Entrepreneurs Assistance Program has substantial resources for low wealth-entrepreneurs, including frequent free
corporate legal clinics in communities all over the state and matching up qualifying clients with free attorneys.
Small Business and Technology Development Centers exist on many state college campuses and provide management counseling and educational services to small and mid-sized businesses. Most services are free of charge, and all are confidential. SBTDC has supported local businesses and helped to create local jobs since 1984.
Entrepreneurial Development Training for Veteran Women: Syracuse University, the Office of Veterans Business Development, and the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) has developed a training program to encourage and support female veterans with an interest in exploring careers/ opportunities in small business ownership. Seminars will be held in various times and places. For more information, click here.
