The Georgia Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce the beginning of its 2019 New Georgia Economy Series. In partnership with local Chambers, the Georgia Chamber will offer half-day workshops to provide unique insights on the emerging business trends and risks, and the impact to small businesses, innovation and entrepreneurship that the state faces.

To take advantage of Georgia’s emerging economy and help businesses prepare for the changes, the series provides an opportunity for small business owners to hear from experts about a wide range of topics. Those topics include big data and security, talent and leadership, entrepreneurship and innovation, global commerce and competitiveness, advanced corporate and university research and development, and physical infrastructure and assets. Small businesses will have the opportunity to better prepare for the developing trends in the economy as well as mitigate the risks.
