Business Development Service
Southeast Raleigh is a treasure trove of diverse, creative and entrepreneurial minds. Many citizens are interested in opening a small business or a non-profit and just don’t know what direction to take to begin bringing their business goals to fruition or even if their plan or ideas are viable. SERA Inc.’s team of experts work to clarify and de-mystify the steps it takes for business minded individuals to start a successful business.
In order to be an effective and successful business owner while impacting the economic environment within communities through your business venture, businesses and organizations must not only advocate for change; they must be structured as a legitimate 501c3 non-profit organization, or LLC, and work toward financial independence or solicit financial support for their products, programs, services. SERA, Inc. is committed to supporting and providing technical assistance to those who want to experience that structure.
