UNA-Georgia and SMEDA Empower Entrepreneurs: Meet the Startups at UNA@Tbilisi Open Air


Did you know that fostering the growth of entrepreneurs is one of UNA-Georgia’s priorities?

To achieve this goal, we are actively collaborating with SMEDA under the USAID Unity Through Diversity Program. 

Through collaborative endeavours, we are committed to extending support to startups, micro and small enterprises, via the “starta“ business accelerator and subsidy program. These initiatives aim to nurture and empower entrepreneurs, ultimately fostering the development of a robust and sustainable business ecosystem across the regions of Georgia.
