Every community can grow, we can help

Make Startups



Supporting Entrepreneurship is one of the most powerful tools for creating positive change in communities. When you Make Startups™ you create economic growth, improve community health, and impact social change through economic independence. There are many approaches to fostering innovation ecosystems. We help public and private sector community leaders build new networks in their communities to grow a culture of innovation and build entrepreneur ecosystems.

Our team of practitioners built and operate, an independent financially self-sustaining not for profit multi-location innovation center in Augusta, GA that supports over 80 businesses and 250 jobs. In addition, we support innovation centers, economic developers, coworking, and makerspaces in other communities through strategic planning, collaborative events, financial planning, licensed curriculum, ecosystem research, and advocacy.

We believe that entrepreneurs can succeed anywhere, and are here to help community leaders build successful ecosystems that foster innovation.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Eric on a number of projects. He organized the first major Hackathon in Augusta, GA and has worked tirelessly to build a thriving tech ecosystem in the heart of the South. His enthusiasm and joy is infectious and inspires everyone he meets with a dream to create and improve the world around us.
