Clayton State SBDC to Present GrowSmart in Fayetteville

Jun 25 2015

Whether in business for two years or 20 years, many small business owners are so busy working IN the business, they neglect working ON it. As a result, the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) at Clayton State University is bringing GrowSmart to Fayette County for the fourth time.

SBDC’s GrowSmart gives business owners the steps, tools, and strategies to grow.  In five weeks, from Aug. 4 to Sept. 1, business owners will learn how to analyze and manage a business like a seasoned CEO by combining the latest ideas with timeless business principles.

GrowSmart will be held at Fayette County Development Authority (FCDA) located at 200 Courthouse Sq., Fayetteville. The program fee of $895 per person includes weekly networking breakfasts, lunches and course materials. There are a limited number of partial scholarships, given on a first-come, first-served basis.

“GrowSmart graduates gain so much from the program that many times they send their managers the next year. They leave the program with a definite action plan that positions their businesses for the next level of growth,” says Alisa Kirk, area director, Clayton State University SBDC.

GrowSmart is designed for leaders of companies with at least two years of successful operation, at least one non-owner employee, and annual revenues of $200,000 or more. To enhance the experience, registration is limited to 20 participants.
