Georgia Power, college alum support “Main Street Entrepreneurs Seed Fund” at Georgia State

Georgia State University’s Entrepreneurship and Innovation Institute (ENI) has selected a diverse and innovative group of founders for the second cohort of its “Main Street Entrepreneurs Seed Fund” (MSESF). The second cohort is supported by donations from the Georgia Power Company and Georgia State alumnus Ahmet Bozer, a retired executive vice president at Coca-Cola.

The MSESF is a part of Georgia State’s effort to create an entrepreneurial ecosystem of resources to support entrepreneurs and innovators. With an emphasis on fostering inclusive entrepreneurship, the six-month program was created to support underrepresented students, recent alumni and Georgia State community entrepreneurs with seed funding and mentorship to start and grow new ventures.

The business accelerator program has received global recognition and was a recipient of the Award for Excellence in Specialty Entrepreneurship Education from the Global Consortium of Entrepreneurship Centers in 2020. To learn more, click here.
