Connecting NC Businesses with Federal Opportunities

The North Carolina Military Business Center provides North Carolina businesses with access and resources they need to secure federal contracts, grow jobs, raise the tax base and improve quality of life for everyone in the state. With industry professionals and resources in fields including construction, cyber security, biomedicine, aerospace, subsistence, and more, the NCMBC provides valuable services and resources to businesses all across the state.

Since opening in 2005, NCMBC-assisted businesses have won 3,451 federal contracts with the federal government, the Department of Defense, and various military bases in the state, with a minimum estimated value of $13.26 billion. These contracts generated more than $475 million in state corporate income tax and a return on state investment in the NCMBC of over 20:1.

In addition to helping businesses connect to contract opportunities, the NCMBC provides one-on-one counseling by career federal contracting professionals to simplify the contracting process. The NCMBC also connects businesses to federal agencies and opportunities with statewide summits and MatchForce.org, and supports recruitment of defense contractors. It also helps North Carolina businesses to employ highly skilled, transitioning military personnel and veterans — an engine for economic development in our state.
