Georgia defines a small business as one which is independently owned and operated and must have either fewer than 300 employees or less than $30 million in gross receipts per year. We are a portion of America’s 27 million small businesses, we represent 99 percent of U.S. employers and account for three quarters of all new jobs created.
We are the smallest of businesses but stand to make the biggest impact. We are the backbone of not only this town and this state, but we are the backbone of America.
Small Biz Athens is designed to be the ultimate hub for small businesses, with useful links, guides, information, and all of the latest business news. We hope to be a continued resource for the small business community and help entrepreneurs start & grow businesses in the Athens, Georgia area.
