In the midst of the recession, the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation noted in 2009 that entrepreneurship in the U.S. spiked to an all-time high, reaching its highest peak in 14 years. Much of this is to the credit of community-based programs that teach the fundamentals for grassroots start-ups to business expansion.


At the helm of such an effort are Charlie and Charlena Brown who operate the City of Savannah’s Entrepreneurial Center.  The Browns, longtime business mavericks, grew the Center’s free entrepreneurship workshop program from lukewarm attendance to classes that are often packed with no seats left empty.
