Goizueta’s Start:ME business accelerator program graduated 54 promising entrepreneurs and awarded $30K in grants to business owners in Atlanta’s Southside, Clarkston and East Lake communities. The three-month long accelerator program awarded the grants to 18 local microbusinesses.


Research from the Goizueta Business School lists four reasons why microbusinesses are critical resources to communities:

  • They provide products and services tailored to their community
  • They occupy otherwise vacant storefronts and provide places for neighbors to meet
  • They stimulate an inflow of community resources
  • They provide role models and support for future entrepreneurs
