Attn: Star Businesses or Downtown Property Owners!!!

There is an "Information Event" tomorrow at STARworks in Star, NC from 5:30-7:30 for small businesses or potential small businesses that would locate in downtown Star.

Business loans are available for qualifying potential startup businesses and existing businesses looking to locate in downtown Star, NC thru the Star STEP (Small Towns Economic Prosperity) Program in partnership with the NC Rural Center according to an announcement released by The STARt Up Team this week.

In an effort to identify qualifying current or potential small businesses and collaborate with owners of available buildings, The STARt Up Team is hosting an “Information Event” in conjunction with the first “Hot Glass, Cold Beer” of the season at STARworks Thursday, September 14th.

Interested businesses will receive details about program resources, information about available sites in downtown Star, and assistance in completing the Microenterprise Loan Program pre-application paperwork.

At the event, commercial building owners can provide the details about their available property to The STARt Up Team which will be used to create a database for helping connect potential businesses with available space.

The event will take place at STARworks on Thursday, September 14 between 5:30 and 7:30 p.m. Owners of available buildings who complete the inventory assessment, and small business owners who complete an interest form, will be entered into a drawing for two beautiful glass pumpkins provided courtesy of STARworks.
