The Gwinnett Entrepreneur Center, located in downtown Lawrenceville, is an entrepreneur and small business support facility operated by Gwinnett County Government. The center functions both as an education center and a business incubator, offering in-person and online services.
Location and hours
The Gwinnett Entrepreneur Center is located at 405 North Perry Street in Lawrenceville, Georgia. The center is a 24/7 operation providing secure access to Resident Members. Regular administrative hours are Monday through Friday, 8:00am to 5:00pm, excluding County holidays.
The County has partnered with Georgia Gwinnett College to operate and staff the Gwinnett Entrepreneur Center in close collaboration with the County. The center is managed by a three-person team composed of the Center Manager and Center Director, both GGC employees, as well as a representative from the County’s Office of Economic Development (collectively, the Management Team). In addition to the Manager and Director, GGC provides student interns to help conduct center activity.
The Gwinnett Entrepreneur Center seeks to support small businesses by reducing the risk and mitigating the challenges they face during startup and growth, as well as proactively engaging with underserved populations, and in turn creating jobs, spurring innovation, and bolstering the local economy.
To fulfill its mission, the Gwinnett Entrepreneur Center offers programs ranging from business education and coaching to connections to capital sources and customers, and it serves as a central portal for entrepreneurial resource networks.
Additionally, businesses accepted for membership are eligible (depending upon membership level) for workspace, conference and training room use, printing and copying, and a private mailbox. Members spend a designated period completing a set of tasks, after which they receive a certificate acknowledging them as a graduate of the Gwinnett Entrepreneur Center. See the Membership section for more details and a link to the online application.
