Douglas County was the 20th community in the state to be designated “Entrepreneur Friendly” by the Georgia Department of Economic Development. This designation formally recognizes Douglas County as proactively nurturing a thriving entrepreneurial environment and engaging innovative economic development strategies. This is a crucial element in our continued success; an estimated 90 percent of the combined business licenses of Douglas County and the City of Douglasville are held by small business owners.
The Chamber’s Small Business Committee continuously works to create new and innovative ways to support small businesses in Douglas County. With over 75% of Chamber Members being small businesses of 10 or less full time employees, ourgoal is to provide diverse programming to accommodate every small business’s needs.
Programs created from the Small Business Committee include:
The Small Business Committee meets the 4th Tuesday of the month at 9 a.m. at the Chamber. For more information, contact the Chamber at 770.942.5022
