Chatham SPARK Program

Welcome to The Chatham Spark Program, a partnership of the Chatham Chamber of Commerce, Central Carolina Community College - Small Business Center and Mountaire Farms.

So, you are thinking about starting a new business? Or you have been in business less than two years? Running your own business is exciting and sometimes overwhelming. We want to make the process as smooth as possible.

Through the Chatham Spark Program, you will develop a business plan, which is a roadmap for your business; gain insight for financing and banking options; understand legal references; and overcome your fear of bookkeeping and taxes. All this and many other details that are required to make your new business a success.


All attendees must apply online. Classes are free, but participants must be pre-registered and approved to be guaranteed a space. Class size is limited to twelve individuals.    Read more...
