Grants awarded to SEEDS center

March 14, 2006

Valdosta - A resource center for entrepreneurs in South Georgia has more money to help start new businesses.

The SEEDS Center in Lowndes County recently received two grants totaling $14,000. A $10,000 grant came from Georgia's One Georgia Authority, and $4,000 came from the Wal-Mart Foundation.

The center provides people with all the resources they need to start a new business, from information on writing business plans, banking, and demographics. Wal-Mart managers say it helps the whole community grow, and in turn, brings more money to their business. "It brings more people to the area, keeps people employed and working, so they'll have an income and they spend it at Wal-Mart," said Wayne Arnold, Wal-Mart Manager. 

The SEEDS Center is located inside the Valdosta-Lowndes County Chamber of Commerce. The services are free to anyone in South Georgia.
