Resources Here At Home


Wouldn’t it be nice to have a place close by to support entrepreneurs, start-up businesses and small businesses? Wouldn’t it be nice to have a place to begin a business with resources to help and an office space to use without the high rent?

Accelerators, incubators and shared workspaces seem to be popping up everywhere to enhance and encourage young entrepreneurs. These places create a network for small businesses to lean on while trying to figure out the next phase of their business plan or model. This entrepreneurial environment is spreading rapidly across North Carolina. Harnett County continues to support our local entrepreneurs by offering services to our citizens, yet they many times go unnoticed.

Triangle South Enterprise Center is North Carolina’s second-oldest business incubator and is located in Dunn. With 18,500 square feet, Triangle South Enterprise Center has the space for new and growing businesses to blossom. Triangle South rents office spaces, large and small, at below-market rates to help guide small business startups in the area. Flexible lease terms and space arrangements are available to accommodate the needs of each tenant company. Shared support services are available on an optional basis, including free Wi-Fi, conference room use, mail and package delivery through its business office, as well as ongoing relationships with a business counselor at the Small Business Center.

The Small Business Center provides business counseling services, seminars, workshops and other assistance to businesses located in Harnett County and surrounding areas. Valuable information to support small businesses is right here in Dunn and has been for 30 years. There is no need to travel to other places when you get the resources you need right here at home.
