GSU's City Campus looks to expand E-Zone clientele
Rob Wilkerson pitches his business ideas to the Georgia Southern University Entrepreneurial Zone Advisory Council Mentoring Committee last week inside the City Campus building in downtown Statesboro.
Imagine what it would be like if Statesboro had been the home of Google, Facebook or Microsoft – software giants that have had and continue to have multibillion dollar economic impacts on the communities in which they are based. For many years this has been the purpose of industrial development; to do everything possible to attract such business goliaths, but it is becoming increasingly more difficult to do so in a recessive economy in which more and more communities are soliciting industry as a way to create jobs for its residents. There is another way to grow the job base in Bulloch County according to Dr. Luke Pittaway, the director for the Center for Entrepreneurial Learning and Leadership in the College of Business Administration at Georgia Southern University.
