Small Business Incubator

Small businesses represent a high percentage of all employers and are critically important to the ongoing growth of our community and country.

We can help get your small business on track

Central Community College’s Small Business Institute (SBI) offers a variety of services to small business owners and potential owners throughout the 25-county area served by CCC.

The Central Community College Foundation received some specific donations, micro loan funds and grants to establish the Small Business Institute (SBI) in 1990 to encourage the formation of new, small businesses and to assist existing small businesses with growth opportunities. Small businesses represent a high percentage of all employers and are critically important to the ongoing growth of our community and country.

The SBI is an integral part of the CCC Foundation and CCC. It is under the general direction of a four-member board of directors and is staffed by a part-time professional.
