Valdosta - If you're interested in starting your own business in South Georgia, there's a new resource that can help you.

The Valdosta-Lowndes County Chamber of Commerce's SEEDS center has now gone regional. SEEDS stands for Sewing Entrepreneur and Economic Development Success.

The center offers everything you need to know about starting a business, and is now available to people in Cook, Berrien, Brooks, Lanier, Echols, and Lowndes counties.

"There's so many facets that we never think of when we start into a business, and the SEEDS center has all the resources available at their fingertips so a person can just walk in the door and start," said Terri Lupo.

Tuesday, Georgia Power donated $10,000 to the SEEDS center to help in its regional efforts.

The center is located inside the Valdosta-Lowndes Chamber of Commerce.
