About the event
NewTown Macon and the Macon-Middle Georgia Black Pages will announce the winners of the Downtown Diversity Initiative during a press conference held at Churchills on Cherry on Thursday, August 31 at 10am.
With support from Wells Fargo, the Downtown Diversity Initiative took place this summer with a cohort of 25 entrepreneurs. Participants were selected through a competitive application process and completed a 6-session business training program designed to help participants successfully scale their business idea or concept. On August 19, the Downtown Diversity Initiative concluded with members of the cohort pitching their business concepts to a panel of local business experts. The top five scoring graduates received $5,000 to help start or expand their current business.
Representatives from Wells Fargo, NewTown Macon, and the Macon-Middle Georgia Black Pages will announce the winners at the press conference and provide more information about this important initiative.
