Spotlight On... Small Business

Organization: Albany State University
Main Office: Albany, GA

Albany State University (ASU) facilitates the delivery of Money Smart to first-time homeowners and in support of micro-enterprises through its Regional Center for Entrepreneurship, Business and Workforce Development. It also utilizes Money Smart for Young Adults as a Continuing Education Community Outreach course, and is introducing the curriculum to local public high schools in Albany, Georgia.

ASU has trained over 120 staff and other partners to deliver the curriculum. After completing the Money Smart training for First Time Homebuyers, ten families purchased their first home. ASU also provided technical assistance that led to the creation of five new small businesses inside its incubator, in addition to four other businesses created outside the incubator partnership.
