Small Biz Summit

Navigate the Future; Strategies for success in an evolving business landscape

The Cape Fear Community College Small Business Center is proud to host the 2nd Annual Small Biz Summit, a one-day event designed to provide local entrepreneurs and small business owners with valuable resources, networking opportunities, and expert advice.

The Small Biz Summit will feature various panels, speakers, and break-out sessions on marketing, government contracting, and finding your target customer. Participants will have the chance to hear from successful local entrepreneurs, trained experts and business consultants, and to ask questions and share their experiences.

Business is about repetitiously solving problems for others. Attendees will learn how to branch out in person and online and build a sustainable and prosperous business. Attendees can expect energetic, information-packed, action sessions that will allow them to improve their marketing, gain financial guidance, mentorship and create an action plan for success now and in the future.
