Albany - Entrepreneurs, who are looking to open new business in Albany, continue to complain that the start-up process is confusing, time-consuming and unorganized. The Chamber of Commerce is trying to change that.

Chamber President Tim Martin announced new plans to make starting up a small business easier in Albany and Dougherty County. Each entrepreneur will get a site maps, showing which buildings you need to visit to get certain requirements - from business licenses to loans.

The Chamber will also refer business owners to the Small Business Center for free start-up counseling. Tim Martin says it's nearly impossible right now to create a one-stop shop, where entrepreneurs can go to get all the permitting and information they need.

"The 15, 16 or 18 entities that support small businesses today will be so closely related that they will be able to support each other," said Tim Martin.

This week, the Chamber is offering free small business seminars. Tuesday morning's seminar is "Secrets to winning Government Contracts." It starts at 8:30AM. Wednesday at 8:30AM there will be a class on holding effective meetings.
