Fayette Chamber releases small business workshop series


New for 2022!
Our word for 2022 is INNOVATIONThe goal of the Small Business Workshop series is to offer increased engagement with shared learned experiences in a hands-on, problem-solving, interactive format.

The series kicks off with Kim Knight, the Area Director of the UGA Small Business Development Center at Clayton State University.

Kim is a communications professional with more than 20 years of experience in marketing and communications, economic development, and small business outreach.

Serving in numerous roles in Georgia state government, Kim’s work as a marketing coordinator supported the Governor’s Small Business Center’s outreach efforts to include the Governor’s Mentor Protégé Program, the first of its kind, state-funded program in the country partnering large and small businesses for an 18-month engagement.

At the Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDECD), Kim worked in marketing, research, and business development. Small Business Outreach Program Manager was her final role at GDECD through which she assisted small businesses with navigating the vast resources of the state of Georgia via one-on-one consultations, speaking engagements, and partnering with various community organizations.

Kim also worked with Invest Atlanta as the small business opportunity zones program manager. Her work with Invest Atlanta helped deploy more than $1.5 million into the small business community in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. She also worked with the opportunity zones team, assisting small businesses with information and opportunities in the City of Atlanta’s 26 Federal Opportunity Zones.

Most recently, Kim was a business consultant with the UGA SBDC at Georgia State University.
