Georgia creates "Entrepreneur Friendly" communities

Submitted by acohill on Mon, 02/13/2006 - 14:15

Georgia has created Entrepreneur Friendly communities (hat tip to the excellent EDPro blog).

It takes about a year for a rural community to qualify for the award, which is managed by the Georgia Dept. of Economic Development. In order to qualify, local leaders have to take leadership training, receive training on entrepreneurship needs, and work with local businesses (often a new concept for economic developers). Some communities are already reporting that they are seeing results.
