Do It the TARHEEL Way


Guide Description:

Participants will learn the TARHEEL way (The Agency Route to Helping Expand Entrepreneurial Literacy) of working with economic development agencies to help entrepreneurs succeed locally and globally while contributing to the area’s workforce and economic development. Sample agreements, course/seminar ideas, and marketing materials will be provided.


Full Description:
Wake Tech is a leader among the community colleges in North Carolina when it comes to economic and workforce development. More than 4,000 new and existing entrepreneurs have been counseled and trained, and thousands of new jobs were created in the past year by working with local, state, national and international agencies to serve small business owners and budding entrepreneurs.


Chambers of Commerce, NC Department of Commerce, US Export Assistance Centers, SCORE, SBA, HUB, NC Military Business Center and the NC Women’s Business Center are just some of the organizations that Wake Tech partners, cooperates, collaborates, allies, and joint-ventures with to help achieve its three goals:


·         To establish an environment where businesses can succeed

·         To help new businesses start and existing ones grow

·         To attract new businesses to our communities


In this session, Wake Tech’s Dean of Business & Industry Services, the Small Business Center Director, and the Director of Entrepreneurship will share the strategies and specific tactics employed in working with economic development agencies to help entrepreneurs succeed in this rapidly growing part of North Carolina.

Fred Gebarowski, Director of Entrepreneurship, Wake Technical Community College, NC
