Entrepreneurial Leadership AcademyEmpowering people with leadership and entrepreneurial skills to succeed

Using our entrepreneur leadership development curriculum, our faculty and staff can develop a leadership academy for your community that injects leadership development as a core component to successful entrepreneurship.

In 2018, we helped NewTown Macon – a nonprofit organization focused on economic and cultural development in downtown Macon – develop a program that would blend leadership and entrepreneurial skills development for current and aspiring business owners in downtown Macon.

Within our Entrepreneurial Leadership Academy, participants learn to:

  • Focus on developing leadership skills critical to carrying out a business vision and working with others to grow
  • Set the stage to transition ideas into action
  • Cultivate a culture of entrepreneurship
  • Transform their mindset from manager to leader
  • Create confidence in business growth
  • Shift strategic focus from technical “know-how” to productive “know why”
  • Achieve end-goal to plan and confidently pitch entrepreneurial ventures

In 2021, UGA Public Service and Outreach and Georgia Trend Magazine awarded the NewTown Macon Entrepreneurial Leadership Academy a “Four for the Future” recognition.
