A Guide to Setting Up a Small Business in North Carolina

Welcome Entrepreneurs!

Americans are by nature independent. Even before we became the United States of America and North Carolina, individuals who settled here started businesses. Today, hundreds of years later, small businesses are the heart of the American — and North Carolina's — economy. The American economic system, the number of opportunities in North Carolina, and the wealth of resources available to help small businesses, combine to make starting and maintaining a thriving business an achievable dream.
