Fifty loan, grant, and educational experts came together Tuesday to let small business owners know about resources available in the Cape Fear region.

This was the third summit the FDIC sponsored in North Carolina in the last two years.

With North Carolina’s unemployment rate above ten percent, experts hope fostering small business growth will help create new jobs in the area.

Small business owners say the event was the perfect way to get their questions answered, and network at the same time.

“All the players, the movers, the shakers in the area of small businesses are all here. And I have to tell you I was thrilled with the results. Several people that I’ve scheduled appointments with in the next few weeks are here. So it turned a cold call, if you want to call it, into a very hot call,” said Sabina Newman, owner of SCN Insight.

In the future, the FDIC plans to hold three more summits in Charlotte, Raleigh, and Asheville.
