The Start-Up Land Workshop Series is a business development program based on the Start-Up Land print piece, which was produced by the College Hill Alliance, and can be viewed here. SparkMacon and the Mercer Innovation Center have partnered to develop this program into a cohort experience for up to 20 participants, designed to connect aspiring entrepreneurs with local business resources and help them launch their companies.
