About this Center
Operated by Georgia Tech’s Enterprise Innovation Institute, the MBDA Business Center-Atlanta wants to facilitate your company’s growth by connecting you with resources to help your business succeed. Strategically positioned within the Enterprise Innovation Institute, we are surrounded by a wealth of entrepreneurial services and resources your company can access. Through our outreach, resources, and efforts, we have assisted thousands of entrepreneurs.
Our Center enjoys affiliation with some of Georgia’s leading MBEs, corporations, and organizations, many of which have become our clients and partners. Although the Center is physically located in Atlanta, Georgia, we can assist clients anywhere in the United States.
In addition to the Core Business Services, the center specializes in helping clients with improving processes and implementing environmental management, sustainability programs, and ISO 9001/ ISO 14000 certifications. Learn more about the Atlanta Business Center.
Ten years ago on January 14, 2004, we opened our doors at Georgia Tech's Enterprise Innovation Institute. Although we were eager to show our commitment to our mission - to strengthen and grow Minority Business Enterprises (MBEs) - little did we know how successful our clients and center would be! Now, with a track record of providing clients with capital and finance management, domestic and global market assistance, and strategic business consulting, the center has helped our clients secure over $600 million in finance and contracts and create/retain over 3,600 jobs in the U.S.
As we gear up to celebrate this major milestone, we would like to thank you, our clients, strategic partners, and community for helping us through our journey. Without your support and belief in us, our center would not have thrived.
We truly appreciate your continued support.
