FCS sponsors the Southside Cohort for the Start:ME Business Accelerator each year. The accelerator, an offshoot of Emory’s Goizueta School of business, partners with organizations embedded in communities around Atlanta. Capitalizing on these partners’ relationships, the program solicits local entrepreneurs to go through a 14-week course that teaches business fundamentals. We’re so glad to recruit neighbors to this exciting program and to offer our office space for the weekly courses. This deep partnership has been a great boon to establishing an equitable, mixed-income community.
Each year, Historic South Atlanta gets to benefit by receiving new businesses! Shop local with us and take a look at the Start:ME shopping guide!
