Rural Georgia

Investing in our small towns to guarantee their prominent place in Georgia's future

Champions of Change

We are champions of our rural communities and the creators, makers, and tinkers that call them home. We are passionate about sparking meaningful investments, generating exceptional value, and disrupting the status-quo in our small towns.

Our rural development model is built on efficient, sustainable, and transformational change – distinct segments along the innovation continuum. 

From Bainbridge to Blue Ridge, Dublin to Dahlonega, we partner with our communities to leverage existing assets and to tap into new ones. We encourage the pursuit of home-grown wins with hopes of attracting new business investments down the road. We provide technical expertise and strategic planning services to develop solutions.

Together with local leaders, we are helping build viable communities with futures we can all be proud of.
