SBTDC Relocates to PORTAL

The relocation of the Charlotte regional office of the Small Business and Technology Development Center to the UNC Charlotte PORTAL Building concentrates University-affiliated entrepreneurial support services in a state-of-the-art facility. Formerly located in the Ben Craig Center at University Research Park, the SBTDC officially opened in PORTAL, Jan. 2.

"PORTAL opened in early 2014 to serve as the region’s focal point for commercial collaboration among entrepreneurs, corporations, academic researchers, and our students," said Robert Wilhelm, vice chancellor for research and economic development at UNC Charlotte. "The SBTDC resources will add to the vibrant scene that already includes the Ventureprise incubator and special events such as the 2014 Charlotte Venture Challenge."

The UNC Charlotte SBTDC is led by George McAllister, and currently includes five business counselors with broad business expertise. In 2014, they provided assistance to more than 800 small- and mid-sized companies in Mecklenburg and surrounding counties.
