RCCC Small Business Center named regional center of excellence

KANNAPOLIS — Rowan-Cabarrus Community College was among six Small Business Centers receiving regional excellence awards recently during the North Carolina Business Advisors’ Conference. Rowan-Cabarrus was recognized as the Charlotte Region’s Center of Excellence.
“The Small Business Center at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College is at the heart of small business resources in Concord, Kannapolis, Salisbury and surrounding towns,” said Carl Short, chairman of the college’s board of trustees. “Whether you want to start a small business or grow an existing business, the Small Business Center can help you develop a plan of action for lasting success.”
The center’s goal is simple: to provide high quality small business education and relevant, comprehensive assistance to local small businesses.
“Small businesses are a vital part of North Carolina’s economic growth,” said Dr. Scott Ralls, N.C. Community College System president “Businesses launched through the support of our centers have met community needs, secured military contracts and provided countless employment opportunities to the residents of the communities they serve.
“From drafting their business plan, to opening day and beyond, the staff of our small business centers are helping potential entrepreneurs find success as business owners.”
Small business centers are located at all 58 N.C. community colleges.
The Rowan-Cabarrus center is a community-based provider of education, training, counseling, information and referral, assisting entrepreneurs with business ideas and existing small business ventures.
The center also offers free seminars with support from the Rowan County Chamber of Commerce, Cabarrus Regional Chamber of Commerce, the city of Kannapolis, the Rowan Business Alliance, RowanWorks Economic Development, the Small Business & Technology Development Center, and Downtown Salisbury, Inc.
The seminars cover a broad range of small business topics, including business start-ups, business financing, marketing, internet business, business growth and development, taxes, recordkeeping and customer service.
