Hinesville, Georgia, is now home to a brand-new business incubator, thanks to a collaborative effort by the Hinesville Development Authority, Liberty County Chamber of Commerce, the city of Hinesville, and Georgia Southern University’s Business Innovation Group (BIG). The incubator, located near Georgia Southern’s Liberty Campus, is a beacon of hope for local entrepreneurs, military veterans, and career changers.
Mayor Allen Brown expressed his pride in the project, stating, “This invaluable asset will serve as a wellspring of innovation and a cornerstone of growth for our community. It is not merely a building; it is a symbol of the city’s commitment to fostering local talent, nurturing entrepreneurship, and enriching the lives of our residents.”
The incubator will be managed by BIG, which already operates two other incubators in the state. Kenneth Howard, city manager for Hinesville, believes the incubator will be a driving force for a brighter, more prosperous future for the community.
The incubator offers a membership model with various options, including private offices, hot desks, dedicated pods, and virtual workspaces. Members will have access to training programs, business coaching, and BIG’s extensive network of resources. Community programs like BIG Café will also be open to the public, providing networking opportunities and a glimpse into the exciting ventures being developed.
Leah Poole, CEO of the Liberty County Chamber of Commerce, and Justin McCartney, chairman of the Hinesville Development Authority, both expressed their belief in the incubator’s potential to make a significant difference in the local entrepreneurial landscape.
BIG, founded over a decade ago, has been instrumental in fostering economic vitality in the region through its business incubator centers. With the addition of the Hinesville Business Incubator, BIG continues to expand its footprint and the economic development in the region.
