Club E in College Park, Georgia was second Club E location in the US. In 2010, through Club E – Phoenix, Bob Johnson was introduced to Barbara Coffee, a fellow Club E member from the Phoenix area. Barbara had recently taken a new position as head of economic development for the City of College Park, Georgia, just south of Atlanta.
Together Bob and Barbara created a concept of a public private partnership that would initially be funded by a grant from the city. About 9 months later the city was awarded a $150,000 federal grant to develop an entrepreneurial center in College Park.
City Council approved the business model of Club E and awarded them the grant to start a business center. Club E – College Park launched in June 2011 and is currently carrying on monthly meetings and workshops in the College Park facilities with anticipation that the new Club E location will be opening in June 2013.
