ULGA’s Metro Atlanta Capital Readiness Program (MACRP)

The ULGA’s Metro Atlanta Capital Readiness Program (MACRP) is designed to support Socially and Economically Disadvantaged Individuals (SEDIs) across 6 counties consisting of Cobb, Clayton, Dekalb, Fulton, Gwinnett, and Henry.  Population includes minority, women, veteran, and other underserved entrepreneurs to build capacity and scale by preparing them to access capital via the State Small Business Credit Initiative (SSBCI) or other programs that support small businesses.

This program will provide a business assessment and coaching with an individualized action plan, financial education, certification(s), and provide capital readiness for a variety of funding sources (Traditional funding, CDFI funding, lines of credit, angel investors, etc.), and procurement education. The ULGA MACRP will offer two tracks for SEDIs: 1) a small business incubator early-stage platform and 2) a small business capital readiness accelerator with technical assistance model.
