Freedom Lawns is proud to be a member of the UNCW Entrepreneurship Center for many reasons. Owner, Mark Tamn, believes that the UNCWEC is an extremely valuable resource for existing and future business owners throughout Southeastern North Carolina. As a small business owner, it comforting to know that during these challenging economic times there is credible and reliable information available to help all entrepreneurs make sound business decisions. The ongoing strength of our local economy will always be dictated by the ability of our small business community to continue to thrive, be profitable, and provide careers for others. The educational seminars, programs and general guidelines presented by the UNCWEC have been most instrumental in helping Tamn learn new ways to grow his business.
