NC Chamber Small Business Council

Powering North Carolina’s Economic Success through Entrepreneurship

North Carolina ranks #5 for small businesses, and it’s no accident.

Employing more than 1.7 million people statewide and comprising 99% of all businesses, North Carolina’s small businesses are the lifeblood of our state’s entrepreneurial spirit. The NC Chamber recognizes the vital importance of small business and works tirelessly to ensure they have the freedom to thrive, through advocacy at the NC General Assembly, unparalleled networking and event opportunities, professional development offerings, and more. We are honored to fight daily to promote a business climate in which all businesses, big or small, have unbridled opportunity to provide jobs, improve their communities, and enhance prosperity for all of North Carolina’s people.

We welcome you to join us as our newest Small Business Council member, where you’ll unlock the business development, networking, and branding opportunities necessary to thrive in #1 state for business. We’re ready for you.
