This program is a perfect complement to other valuable business support and referral services in the area like UGA’s Small Business Development Center, the Small Business Assistance Corporation, SCORE, the City’s Economic Development Office and The Creative Coast, to name just a few. ”

“TAG is grateful to SEDA for this substantial commitment to the economic gardening program,” said Tino Mantella, president of TAG. “Their contribution is a testament to the importance of cultivating growth companies in the region to take them to the next level.”
