@kemibennings is the owner of Food For Thought Café and creator of the Carrot Dog. With an eye on expanding her fast-casual vegan food concepts, Kemi was among 21 business owners selected for the Community Wealth Building Business Accelerator, a small business development program launched by @InvestAtlanta and @guildatl. Through the accelerator, the cohort learned advanced business fundamentals to boost business profitability, real estate basics to assist in acquiring commercial real estate and new economic models to build community wealth. Each business also had access to peer coaches and shared back-office services. “It was an amazing experience,” says Kemi. “It provided an abundance of information and training that supports building wealth and small business from a community and socially responsible perspective.” #ATLInBusiness #eachforequal
