NC Small Business Coalition [Program of the NC Rural Center]

The NC Small Business Coalition seeks to lift up the voices of small business advocates through a combination of engagement opportunities, policy and advocacy tools, partnership connections, and resource collaboration.


Join a growing number of small-business owners and entrepreneurship advocates in our state and become a member of the NC Rural Center\’s North Carolina Small Business Coalition! 
The Coalition, along with its accompanying policy agenda, North Carolina\’s New Small Business Plan: A Pathway to Prosperity for All, seeks to ensure entrepreneurs and small-business owners across the state have equitable access to the capital, resources, and tools needed to prosper. Through a combination of engagement opportunities, policy advocacy, and resource collaboration, the Coalition works to ensure the voices of our state\’s small business owners are heard from our rural, urban, and suburban main streets to Jones Street in Raleigh.
Now is the time to advocate for and implement long-term statewide policy solutions to stabilize the economic vitality of our state’s small-businesses. Will you add your name to a growing network of several hundred small business advocates today?
