The purpose of this Golden LEAF grant is to assist in a collaborative project that will help grow new businesses in the most distressed regions of the state. The collaboration between the NC Rural Center, e-NC, NC REAL and the Business and Technology Telecenters (BTTs) for this project will develop a comprehensive entrepreneurial support system in North Carolina. This project will add a technology component to NC REAL’s entrepreneurship training curriculum for farmers and displaced workers and distribute it via skilled “technopreneurs” at the BTTs, which fills a gap in the support system now available to new entrepreneurs.
