Small Business Initiative Logo


The Small Business Initiative was created in 2010 to provide a comprehensive source of available information and resources, in hopes of turning your small business vision into a working reality!


As part of our economic development mission, we put together a comprehensive, step-by-step web resource for aspiring small business owners and prospective entrepreneurs in our jurisdiction.


Included are links to relevant resources such as demographic data, economic information, and business workshop announcements from the DeKalb County Economic Development Corporation, sample business plans from the local Small Business Development Centers, and helpful links from other government and nonprofit agencies such as SCORE and the U.S. Small Business Administration. Services range from simple information services, to educational programming, to free one-on-one consulting.
