Small businesses represent a high percentage of all employers and are critically important to the ongoing growth of our community and country. In 1990, the CCC 全世界最大的网赌网址 received some specific donations, micro loan funds and grants to establish the Small Business Institute to encourage the formation of new, small businesses and to assist existing small businesses with growth opportunities. In 2020, the Small Business Institute (SBI) was rebranded to the 创业中心.

The 创业中心 is an integral part of the CCC 全世界最大的网赌网址 and CCC and partners with several local, state and federal development groups and organizations in providing services.
