The Douglas County Chamber sees the value in helping businesses through all phases of their growth. We successfully provide resources for businesses looking to open their doors and have decided to take the next step in helping those who are looking to take their business to the next level.
The Chamber offers the Small Business Sustainability Program – a program designed for businesses that have been in operation for more than two years and are looking to create a plan for sustaining their organization.
“The Small Business Sustainability Program was a great program to be a part of – as we have tried to build our business into full-time operations, the SBSP made sure that we focused on the “big picture”. The capstone project was a really great resource that we needed to build and has been a tool that we have been able to utilize over and over again. This program was of great value and I was thrilled that the Chamber offered this opportunity to their small business members.”
CO.STARTERS is a 9-week program that equips aspiring entrepreneurs with the insights, relationships, and tools needed to turn business into action. The classes will be held at the Mercer University Douglas Campus.
In Douglas County, CO.STARTERS will be implemented and facilitated by the Mercer University’s Douglas Campus. The nine-week CO.STARTERS program will kick off in August and finish with a celebration open to the community in October. The program is sponsored by the Douglas County Chamber, Douglas UnitE3, BB&T, and Regions Bank. Cohort participants will receive high level training weekly on Tuesdays from 6-9 p.m. at Mercer’s Douglas County Campus located at 975 Blairs Bridge Road in Lithia Springs.
