Georgia Southern's City Campus will host Statesboro chamber's Business After Hours


Georgia Southern University's City Campus will host its annual Business After Hours event from 5-7 p.m. Thursday.

Jointly sponsored by the Downtown Statesboro Development Authority and the College of Business Administration, the event will mark the third anniversary of City Campus.

During the event, the next steps for developing downtown Statesboro will be announced. In addition, three clients of City Campus' Virtual Business Incubator will pitch their businesses. The incubator is a tool to support start-up companies with equipment usage, consulting services and access to banks and investors.

Savannah's Maven Makers will also be on hand to give attendees a small-scale preview of the "FabLab," which is short for fabrication laboratory, a place for people to design, build, test and introduce new products into the marketplace, thereby generating new jobs and advancing the city's economic development.

"We're excited to have our entrepreneurs give a pitch and have our College of Business dean drum up support for our activities at City Campus," said Dominique Halaby, the director of the Bureau of Business Research and Economic Development.

Allen Muldrew, the director of the DSDA added: "This event highlights the successful partnership between the City of Statesboro and Georgia Southern University. This Business After Hours will be both entertaining and informative."

Appetizers and drinks will be served.
