Whether you’re trying to finish holiday shopping or simply are interested in supporting local small businesses, the Start:ME 2019 Holiday Gift Guide could have what you need in December and beyond.
The guide showcases Atlanta-area businesses that have completed Start:ME, an intensive training program for promising small businesses. Emory’s Goizueta Business School partners with community-based nonprofits to deliver the program to talented entrepreneurs who live in, work in or provide valuable products and services to the Atlanta community.
The program gives entrepreneurs the tools and connections necessary to build and grow successful businesses in East Lake, Clarkston and Southside Atlanta. Since its inception, Start:ME has served 208 small businesses, 84% of which are led by people of color and 68% led by women, creating or retaining 338 jobs and generating $7.9 million in annual revenue.
This holiday season, the guide features products and services ranging from sweet treats and handmade gifts to home improvement and repairs.
