Micro and Small Business Support Program

All adult Georgian citizens will be able to participate in the program as entrepreneurs who have or have not received financial support from Enterprise Georgia’s Micro and Small Business Support component before.

Existing beneficiaries of the agency will be able to receive a grant to both expand their funded projects and start new ones.

Importantly, Tbilisi has been added as one of the target locations of the Micro and Small Business Support Program, which prioritizes supporting more than 300 economic activities.
