Here’s where you can learn to start a business in Atlanta

That business idea you’ve been sitting on for weeks could finally come into fruition with the help of the city of Atlanta. 

Residents interested in starting their own business can learn the basics at “The Ultimate Business Tune-Up,” a free workshop hosted by the city officials. 

The Office of the City Solicitor and Atlanta councilmen Michael Julian Bond, Andre Dickens, and Matt Westmoreland are partnering to offer the hourlong workshop.

“We are bringing the city’s code enforcement agencies to the table to assist business owners in maintaining their business,” City Solicitor Raines F. Carter said in a statement. “We are (also) educating our commercial business owners on how to be in good standing with all city requirements.”

Budding entrepreneurs will learn how to obtain a business license and about commercial property maintenance. 

The free event will be held from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at Atlanta City Hall on 55 Trinity Avenue. 

Attendees can R.S.V.P for the event online or call by calling program management officer Rene Webb in the Office of the City Solicitor’s Office at 404-658-6965.
