What is Flex
The goal of the Foundational Leadership and Entrepreneurship Experience (FLEX) is to create prosperity and revitalize rural entrepreneurial ecosystems through the education of students on the rewards, sacrifices, and processes incurred in the establishment of small businesses.

We are developing a FLEX non-profit that will serve as a resource center that facilitates local and statewide competitions. FLEX will become financially self-sustaining by utilizing program fees and statewide industry sponsorships from Georgia companies and industries interested in the development of rural entrepreneurship.

With proof of concept in Fitzgerald-Ben Hill County, we are eager to further develop the FLEX competition so that it can be implemented in other schools and scaled statewide. This growth would culminate in a Statewide competition where district winners compete for a state title.
