We're open for business!

The Small Business Center is open and ready to serve you. Currently, we are operating virtually with online/remote counseling sessions and seminars, but SBC staff members are ready and able to help in any way we can!

Rally Fund for Small Businesses

The Rally Fund for Small Businesses was created to provide relief for Wake Tech's Small Business Center clients and graduates of the LAUNCHMyWakeCounty program.

Small businesses throughout our community have been forced to restructure their business models or close their doors due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite all of this, they remain resilient and optimistic during this time of uncertainty.

Thank you for rallying with us to support our Small Business Center clients and graduates of the LAUNCHMyWakeCounty program! Together we can make a difference.
