A new report finds that Wilmington, NC is the second best place to start a business in the United States.
Among the features of our region were a relatively small population, a high volume of businesses, a thriving downtown and business resources:
A growing population, strong tourism industry and proximity to the beach make this port city ideal for businesses. Wilmington has about 15 businesses for every 100 people — the highest volume of businesses in our top 10. Nearly 900 of those businesses are downtown, including Flytrap Brewing, a craft brewery, and Fuzzy Peach, a frozen yogurt chain started by three friends who met at the University of North Carolina-Wilmington. Businesses can join the Wilmington Chamber of Commerce to get listed in its business directory, attend training seminars and go to biannual business-to-business networking expos.
This announcement is an extraordinary achievement and once again highlights the exceptional nature and quality of life in Wilmington, North Carolina. To capitalize on this in attracting entrepreneurs to the community, the CFEDC is dedicated to helping entrepreneurs find the necessary resources and associates for carrying forward their development activities.
