Business incubator holds open house

October 25, 2007

Albany -- Albany State University wants to show off its Business and Workforce Development Center during this weekend's homecoming celebration.

The Center is holding an open house tomorrow at the Micro-business Enterprise Center building downtown. An Historically Black College Grant from the Housing and Urban Development Department pays for the A-S-U Business and Workforce Development Center.

It helps South Georgians start and grow new small businesses by giving them offices at low cost and training in business plans, accounting, and customer service. ASU Program Manager of Continuing Ed Linda Sootsman  said "we can be an economic tool for the whole community, the whole region. We've got professors who can provide training. We've got staff and students that can do special projects."

 The open house for the A-S-U Business and Workforce Development Center will be held Friday on the third floor of the Micro business Enterprise Center building at 230 South Jackson Street.
