Our mission

& history


The Southeast Enterprise Facilitation Project provides free and confidential business development planning and coaching to local entrepreneurs and existing business owners. 

We envision a rural region that is economically strong, self-sustaining, and business diverse. Until then, we want to cultivate a local culture where innovative ideas and entrepreneurs can flourish and shopping local is just what everyone does. 

Founded by a group of local business and community leaders, with a desire to see our rural communities thrive, SEFP has offered assistance since 1997. For 25 years, we have been active in helping individuals take an idea and transform it into viable businesses and local solutions, filling gaps in local services, employment opportunities, and convenience.

We want every business owner to know… you do not have to figure it out on your own – we are here for you.

Our local Enterprise Facilitator can help! It costs you nothing. If you have a dream to do something, anything, Enterprise Facilitation is your first resource.

Our commitment to our communities


Our mission is to provide an innovative, grassroots approach to assist individuals to start a new business, expand their current business, or retain a business for the community. We aim to increase local economic vitality and enhance the quality of life in the communities we serve through facilitating opportunities.

We believe a community’s people are its greatest asset. Their passions, talents, and abilities are what make your community a great place to live, work, learn, and thrive. Through the practice of Enterprise Facilitation, SEFP will continue to work consistently and collaboratively toward a bright future for everyone that lives there.

Please join us in asking ourselves, “What can I do to make a local impact?”
