Entrepreneurial Academy

Do you want to start your own business or are you already in business and want help getting past the startup stage? This seven-week program offers the motivated individual all the essential information needed to start and run a successful business.


When you enroll in the Chamber’s Entrepreneurial Academy, you will be taught by business leaders in the community. They will share their successes, give you tips, and mentor you on ways you can succeed in your business. The curriculum includes seven sessions on:

  • Legal entities
  • Accounting
  • Loan options
  • Marketing
  • Social media
  • Insurance
  • Human resources


The cost for the program is $175 (Contact the Chamber to learn how you can save $50.00). This cost includes snacks for every session and a graduation dinner. After completing Entrepreneurial Academy and starting your small business, you will receive Continuing Education credits from Georgia Piedmont College.
