The Georgia Micro Enterprise Network (GMEN)
has worked to build the capacity of micro enterprise organizations
around the United States since 1997. Working in Georgia and throughout the Southeast, GMEN provides the
primary infrastructure for assembling and disseminating information on
micro-enterprise development to MDOs. With GMEN's
support, its members have successfully grown and developed over the past
The number of disadvantaged entrepreneurs served by GMEN has grown and the types of services offered have increased. Our members continue to help businesses start and grow, creating and sustaining jobs. GMEN provides critical services including training, technical assistance, program administration, research and leadership.
GMEN18 Week - September 10-16, 2018
Small Is BIG! is our theme for the 2018 GMEN Conference celebrating the power of entrepreneurship and business development to
transform communities, create and restore generational wealth and knock
down barriers to human achievement. Small is BIG!
acknowledges not only the importance of small business to job creation
and growth, but how small businesses have disrupted and changed the world through gig economies and various platforms.
Small Is BIG! remembers that the legacy of Atlanta, 50 years after the death of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., has come full circle and looks to ways this city can become the focal point in the United States for economic re-engagement for African-Americans across the southeast..
During the conference we will focus on celebrating our past, evaluating our present and innovations needed for our future growth of micro-enterprises and small businesses.
