35 Local Entrepreneurs

IMG_0989Below is a sampling of businesses which began in the Savannah Region and now reach beyond “the county line”, plus a few that are only local but have become essential examples of what we are proud of having as “local”.  There is an amazing story behind every one of these! (hopefully we will have volunteers to help us write those up).  This region also has some shining examples of social entrepreneurship; look at the Building Community page on this site for those worthy examples.
