Seeds II Seams named one of five Georgia ‘Small Business ROCK STARS’


Seeds II Seams was named as one of five 2024 Small Business ROCK STARS by the Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD) as part of the state’s celebration of Georgia Small Business Week 2024, recognized Monday, May 6, through Friday, May 10.

Seeds II Seams will be featured on GDEcD’s social media platforms and highlighted by the Georgia Economic Developers Association (GEDA).

The Georgia Department of Economic Development, along with the Georgia Economic Developers Association, created the Small Business ROCK STAR awards as a way to salute the innovations, outreach, and impact of the state’s small businesses. Each of this year’s winners have fewer than 300 full-time employees, are involved in charitable programs in their communities, and were founded in the State of Georgia.

“Georgia’s small businesses are the bedrock of Georgia’s economy and communities,” said GDEcD Commissioner Pat Wilson. “From Georgia Grown products on grocery shelves to popular hobbies, this year’s Small Business ROCK STARS demonstrate the diverse ways small businesses touch our everyday lives. Congratulations to the 2024 Small Business ROCK STARS and the communities they reflect!”

“As economic developers, we value the impact and participation of the small businesses in our local communities. They help make up the culture of each community,” said GEDA President and CEO Grant Cagle. “Lucky for us, we have many different businesses and industries to celebrate all across Georgia. From metro to rural to coastal, congratulations to the 2024 Small Business ROCK STARS!”
