Plan to accelerate small businesses

Community News

COLUMBUS, Ga. – It might be a little easier now for local start-up business owners and inventors to get the help they need to succeed.

Too often, new business and ideas don’t make it off the ground. That’s because inventors and creators new to the business world often lack the knowledge of how to market themselves and how to make the right business connections. When they fail, so does the local economy. To change that, “Columbus Makes It,” an organization dedicated to helping inventors and entrepreneurs succeed, partnered with Troy University to find a solution. The result of their collaborations is the newly created River City Foundry.

“That’s what River City Foundry will be. It will be that place to draw the talent, and the mentorship, and the investments together, so we can make those connections in our community,” said David Hehman.

River City Foundry is looking for small business owners who wish to participate in an accelerated training program. There is no cost for participants and the campaign runs from July 8th through September 2nd.

If you are interested in the program, you can apply online by clicking here for the Columbus Makes It website.
