The graduates of Macon and Georgia’s first Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA!) program, which was launched by the Greater Macon Chamber of Commerce and for which SparkMacon is a partner, have created 16 new businesses that they are excited to showcase and share with the community during the event!

Stop by the YEA! Pop-Up Shop, which is located to the left of The Lamar Lofts and Reboot Retrocade in Downtown Macon’s Cherry Street, to see a vacant space transformed into a thriving young entrepreneurs market, filled with the new products and creative services the YEA! Macon Graduates have developed.

This event is the first large-scale opportunity for these young CEOs to sell their products as well, so be sure to bring your wallets and shop local!

Special thanks to The Lamar Lofts owners for graciously donating the space for the event.
