The University of West Georgia and Clayton State University are teaming up to give business owners in Fayette County the tools they need to grow their businesses. The new program, GrowSmart, expands the reach of the small business development centers at UWG and CSU for the first time into Fayette County.

GrowSmart gives business owners the steps, tools and strategies they need to analyze and manage like seasoned CEOs by combining the latest ideas with timeless business principles. The six-week course begins Aug. 1 and concludes Sept. 18.

“The GrowSmart program, combined with long-term, one-on-one consulting with SBDC professionals, will teach business owners how to apply course principles and build a business for today’s challenging times,” said Todd Anduze, the area director of UWG’s Small Business Development Center.

GrowSmart is designed for leaders of companies with at least two years of successful operation and annual revenues of $200,000 or more.  To enhance the experience, registration is limited to 25 participants.

GrowSmart will be held at CSU-Fayette, 100 World Drive, Suite 100, in Peachtree City. The program fee of $895 per person includes course materials and weekly networking breakfasts and lunches.

Thanks to generous sponsors, there are a limited number of $500 scholarships available.
