The Entrepreneurial Ecosystem

The Golden Isles Region is replete with entrepreneurial potential, and the Lucas Center is a hub for resources and support for our aspiring entrepreneurs and founders.

Our Partners

Starting a new business or growing an existing one requires support from across industries and sectors. Our partners are available for entrepreneurs in our programs as their needs grow: from seed funding, branding, web development, and childcare, to human resource consulting, real estate, and financing.

If your nonprofit or local business would like to join our network of partners, please reach out. We look forward to connecting and sharing the success and energy of our entrepreneurs with our community partners.
