Entrepreneurship Council

The Cabarrus Entrepreneurship Council was established by Cabarrus Economic Development in 2020 to be an advocate for entrepreneurs in Cabarrus County, working with local and regional partners to create a coordinated system of support. This Council is tasked with overseeing the sustainable operations and programming at the Cabarrus Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship. It is made up of both the partners who will provide programming at the Center and other key businesses and organizations who have offered relevant insight into the needs of the business community.
