Client Testimonials

The Small Business Center has been a tremendous source of insight, perspective, and encouragement for us as we lead our business through its first few months of operation.  It’s so easy to get wrapped up in the fine details of running a business, but regular meetings help us remain focused on the big picture and enthusiastic about meeting our long-term goals.  I highly recommend their services.

The Small Business Center was recommended to us by the Mayor of Winston Salem. The time we spend working with the SBC is invaluable. They have a wide range of expertise and they support us as we take a step back from day to day operations to look at the big picture.

Your organization is what this city needs for anyone who wants to start a business no matter how big or small. I have had some challenges in starting this business but I you kept my spirits up and I will not give up. I know that the Family Fun Center of the Triad will be a featured attraction in this city and employment for young people will be a plus.

Our community is very fortunate to have a resource like the Small Business Center.  The instructors have a passion for helping others succeed. I’ve taken several classes offered by FTCC’s Small Business Center and each one provided useful knowledge that I was immediately able to incorporate in to my business.

The Small Business Center has been a TREMENDOUS resource for me over the years!  I have attended seminars through the SBC before my company started up until now.  They have experts on board who are able to help me navigate various aspects of my business which is an immeasurable asset.  I would recommend the SBC to anyone with or without a business.

I had no idea the opportunities Forsyth Tech offered….and they are free.  Wow, the counseling services are free and come right to us.  So many options, right in our own back yard.

The Small Business Center has been invaluable in assisting us with the start-up of our business in Winston-Salem.

From what organizations to join, or linking us up with business counselors and mentors, the SBC has gone above and beyond. If you are starting a business, or want to improve, see the SBC.
