NC Small Business Center Network

The old way of going into business doesn’t fit today’s economic realities. Entrepreneurs need new, more accessible business formats and new ways of doing business, including pop-ups, shared buildings, businesses inside of other businesses and more. Find out how entrepreneurs are already using these smaller scale market tests to learn what works before making a huge investment. Learn how you can adapt them for any size of community and pull down the barriers to entry.

Restoring Rural Business Series is sponsored by Rural LISC.
