Advancing Entrepreneurship and Economic Growth

BIG in Downtown Statesboro

The Business Innovation Group (BIG), located in downtown Statesboro, is the business outreach arm for Georgia Southern University, and is committed to developing a vibrant entrepreneurship and innovation ecosystem for the southeast region.  BIG provides resources for students and entrepreneurs to gain skills and training necessary to understand business principles, experience how businesses operate, and successfully launch new enterprises.

As a member of the largest institution of higher education in Georgia south of Atlanta, we also recognize our responsibility to contribute to the economic growth and prosperity of the region we serve. As a result, we have made a series of programs, lectures, workshops, and services available to area business leaders, entrepreneurs, and government officials. We are quickly making City Center the hub of innovation in southeast Georgia.
