Winston-Salem, NC -- The Department of Commerce's Economic Development Administration awarded a $1.2 million grant to expand Winston-Salem State University's Enterprise Business Center. The EBC grows new businesses and supports entrepreneurs.
The grant was announced by U.S. Senator Kay Hagan who has been working with a Small Business Advisory Committee since March to find ways to help small businesses expand.
Dr. Notis Pagiavlas talked about the Enterprise Business Center on the Good Morning Show. He says the expansion of the existing incubator program would eventually help create 300 jobs in the area.
"The Center helps address the economy and will bring long-term economic change by creating an environment that supports and grows small business," Dr. Pagiavlas said.
You can attend a Lunch and Learn program on July 11, 2013 to learn more about it. It's from noon until 1 pm at the Enterprise Center, located at 1922 MLK Jr. Drive in Winston-Salem, NC.
Registration is required and lunch is provided. RSVP: firstname.lastname@example.org. Or call 336-734-6900.
