Mission Statement

Our Vision:

The Edge Connection, a nationally recognized leader in microenterprise training, is valued above all for its enduring commitment to advancing economic self-sufficiency and entrepreneurship.

A microenterprise is a business venture that creates a job for low income and low wealth individuals. A micro business is defined as five or less employees and less than $35,000 in capital to launch the business.


Our Mission:

To create opportunities for long-term economic self-sufficiency and successful entrepreneurship through comprehensive entrepreneurial training for low-to moderate-income individuals and communities aspiring to create microenterprise programs.

Description

The Edge Connection offers an award-winning, nationally recognized, multifaceted organization that delivers best-practices in microenterprise and small business training, financial literacy, entrepreneurially focused technology training, and essential entrepreneurial support services to aid microentrepreneurs to launch, sustain, or grow a business.

The Edge Connection is a fully independent, non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization. We are housed on the campus of Kennesaw State University's Coles College of Business and enjoy many benefits from our KSU partnership, including in-kind support and teaching assistance. In the fall of 2004, we were certified as the new Metro Atlanta Area SBA Women's Business Center and launched The Women's Business Center of the Greater Metropolitan Atlanta Area, a WBC that targets low- to moderate-income women, minorities, veterans, and persons with disabilities.
