The North Atlanta Venture Mentoring Service (NAV) is principled and trained by MIT Venture Mentoring Service and is the first of its kind in Georgia. NAV, a pilot program led by the Cherokee Office of Economic Development, is accepting applications for ventures with a working concept and beyond who want to take their business to the next level through team-based mentorship.
Creating a culture of entrepreneurship does not happen overnight.
Take Cherokee County in metro Atlanta, an overnight success, 188 years in the making.
Looking to take their strategy to the next level, COED engaged Boyette Strategic Advisors in 2015 to evaluate the community’s overall economic development plans and COED’s programming.

Led by our Cherokee Office of Economic Development (COED), NAV is the first of its kind in the state of Georgia. The program was made possible through the Cherokee By Choice initiative – a five-year results-driven public/private partnership aimed at reinforcing Cherokee’s role as a leader in economic development.
Fresh Start Cherokee is the entrepreneurship initiative of COED.
“One of the greatest values of mentors is the ability to see ahead what others cannot see and to help them navigate a course to their destination.”
