Resources available for entrepreneurs starting up a small business

If you're looking to start a small business, there's help available for you at the Arthur Williams Microcbusiness Enterprise Center.

On Tuesday Albany City Commissioners gave preliminary approval for Albany Community Together to manage the center, and revive some programs to help entrepreneurs.

CEO Thelma Johnson says they can provide office space, administrative assistance, and capital.

“One in five small businesses fail within its first year, and if they had the proper resources, the proper networks, then they would be successful, and what this center will do is kind of gather all those things in one place,” says Thelma Johnson with Albany Community Together.

Johnson says 80 percent of jobs are supported by small businesses.
