Despite the abundance of offerings, many companies are not aware of the resources and services available to them to help their business grow. PCDC’s IndustryFIRST program serves as a central clearinghouse of information and can direct your company to public resources available to assist you. If you have questions about the resources listed or any other question about business resources please call our office at (252) 902.2077 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for further assistance.
Also, be sure to visit the NC Department of Commerce’s website, BLNC, dedicated to providing existing industries with information about business resources: www.blnc.gov
