For over 50 years, the United States Small Business Administration (SBA) has celebrated national small business week, recognizing the contributions and impact small business has on the national economy in the first week of each May.
The City of Charlotte and Mayor Vi Lyles extended this week-long celebration to a month, highlighting local Charlotte businesses that make a difference in the Queen City with the #31DaysofBiz Campaign. The campaign video series identifies many small businesses and entrepreneurs who play a pivotal role in strengthening the Charlotte local economy.
"Thriving to me isn't simply about growing, but it's really more about the giveback," said Joe Gass, President and CEO of BlueFire.
The company serves organizations large and small that make significant impacts across the City of Charlotte and the Piedmont Region. BlueFire's clientele includes the Charlotte Douglas International Airport, Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority, Carolina Panthers, NASCAR Hall of Fame, Atrium Health, Classroom Central, Method, and the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA).
BlueFire was nominated for the City of Charlotte's #31DaysofBiz Campaign by Michael Moore, the Interim Director Regional Director and Business Advisor at the North Carolina Small Business and Technology Development Center (SBTDC).
The Small Business and Technology Development Center (SBTDC) is North Carolina's leading resource for growing and developing businesses. Since 1984, the SBTDC has helped over 125,000 North Carolina business owners and prospective entrepreneurs make better decisions – often leading to increased revenue and employment. NC SBTDC is administered by North Carolina State University on behalf of The University of North Carolina System and operates in partnership with the U.S. Small Business Administration. In addition, each of the 16 NC offices has affiliations with one of the State's universities.
