How Invest Atlanta and The Guild are Supporting Local Entrepreneurs Through Accelerate Southside
On today’s show, we’re pleased to welcome Erika Smith and Nikishka Iyengar. Erika is the Southside Community and Economic Development Manager at Invest Atlanta, and Niki is the Founder and CEO of The Guild. Together, their organizations have collaborated on a new project called Accelerate Southside, which we will be discussing today.
In this segment, we find out more about The Guild and Invest Atlanta and how they came to be partners on the new project Accelerate Southside. This program was designed with the intention to help minority-owned businesses, on the southside of Atlanta, grow with business acceleration programs and setting them up with store-fronts as a means to build wealth.
