Georgia Small Business ROCK STARS Application
Share |

Nominations are now closed. Please check back soon for updates!


Any type of Georgia-based small business is invited to apply. Nominate your own company or another great Georgia small business. Youth-owned small businesses are also encouraged to apply. Please be sure to fully elaborate and explain your answers so we understand the full impact of the business and why it stands above the rest.

You must employ under 100 (total Georgia employment).

If you have been assisted by your local or state resources, you will receive bonus points (see nomination form for further explanation). 

WHAT’S NEW THIS YEAR?  We have added categories so please be sure to check the one that best describes your business.  We have also added peer-to-peer judging which means that the current 2018 ROCK STARS will be part of the judging process.


The Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD) and the Georgia Economic Developers Association (GEDA) team up every year to recognize the outstanding, unique and impacting small businesses in the state of Georgia.

This unique endeavor for Georgia is a huge success only because of the small businesses that impact Georgia every day…the risks, the innovation, the outreach, the reasons why…all of these qualities abound in Georgia and we want to recognize them.
