Connecting Georgia 2 Georgia...

What is Georgia2Georgia? 

An initiative to connect Georgia's businesses to each other and to foster awareness so that businesses and governments think of Georgia organizations first when making decisions about who to do business with. 


What are the benefits of Georgia2Georgia?

Georgia companies and governments committing to doing more business with in-state partners will strengthen the statewide economy, increase job growth, create new partnerships and support a sense of Georgia pride. Simply put, it will help create a better state of business, which will benefit all Georgians. 


What is the 2% Challenge?

The Georgia Chamber is asking companies to commit to doing 2% more business with Georgia companies in the coming year.  Just 2% more business can have a huge impact on any Georgia company!
