Business Resource Center

Businesss Acceleration; Impacting the Community Economy

In January 2006, through the Chamber’s Small Business Council, Henry County became the 15th county in Georgia designated an “Entrepreneur-Friendly Community.” Over time, the Council has continued to expand and enhance the offerings for small businesses in Henry County.

The Business Resource Center is intended to address the economic development needs identified through discussions with intergovernmental partners. In partnership with our post-secondary partners, state agencies, and local businesses, the Chamber’s program is designed to support the growth and acceleration of small businesses, with a particular focus on minority- and women-owned businesses.

Clayton State University research identified the greatest opportunity for south-metro expansion is in the small business category (fewer than 20 employees). On the Southside, small businesses represent 74.9% of employers. During the last 12 months, those establishments counted 67,610 jobs.

Services include:
• One-on-one counseling sessions
• Professional training
• Resource hours
• Collaborative workspace
• Procurement support and resources
• MBE-certification support
