The Sandhills Entrepreneurship Engagement Network (SEEN) provides entrepreneurs a fast and easy way to find the resources they need to start and build their business. We match the right resources to the startup, close to where they live and do business, free of charge.

Our Strategies

SEEN maintains a large network of nonprofit small business and startup service providers, Entrepreneurs-in-Residence, and academic and government leaders in the 10-county Sandhills region. We link these resource organizations to one another, so they can share best practices and optimize events, workshops, and networking. This ensures SEEN entrepreneurs get the most timely and up-to-date advice and connections.

The network provides a wide range of business-related services, including:

  • Business Planning
  • Loans/Financing
  • Marketing/Sales
  • Licenses/Permits
  • Product Development
  • Training Classes
  • Government Contracts
  • Operations
