Local entrepreneurs and business leaders announced a series of $1,000 grants Thursday to help spur innovative ideas proposed by Middle Georgians.
The 478 Bibb Fund was launched by Macon entrepreneur Stewart Vernon and his peers to help give start-up businesses a small push and a little guidance from those who have been there before, according to a news release.
The fund is open to all individuals and organizations in Middle Georgia, and there are no prerequisites to apply. Any idea, including innovative businesses, community projects and city development plans, can be submitted.
The College Hill Alliance is promoting the 478 Bibb Fund as part of its partnership with JumpStart America to launch its regional plan for fostering entrepreneurs.
