"Entrepreneur Friendly" Community
Hart County is state's newest designated "Entrepreneur Friendly" community
Statewide program helps foster current and potential small businesses
Hart County has joined the state's rank of "Entrepreneur Friendly" communities, an official designation indicating the community is developing an environment conductive to small business and entrepreneurs. Northeast Georgia's Hart County is the 18th community in the state to earn "Entrepreneur Friendly" status from the Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD)'s Entrepreneur and Small Business Office.
Hart County completed a two-day assessment by a review team that identified strategies to implement entrepreneur and small business development programs. The Hartwell DDA and the Hart County Chamber of Commerce now have local support programs and tools readily available to help ensure business retention and growth. A resource guide is available for your convenience at each location which includes information on low interest loan programs, frequently asked questions and Core 4 class information.
The Core 4 class available at North Georgia Tech is a twelve hour business planning course that helps you analyze your business opportunity and plan for success. It guides you through marketing, cash flow planning, and many more essentials for small business success. The Chamber and the DDA have scholarships available for the Core 4 course.
