For new clients looking to start up or expand your regional business, ACEnet can offer resources and support. ACEnet assists with business planning, marketing, financial management, incubator space, and manages the Athens Food Ventures Center, the Nelsonville Food Hub distribution center, and the Nelsonville Food & Farm Enterprise Center.

All potential clients are required to complete an Intake Form. The form provides information which helps our staff gain a sense of your business experience, and which assistance areas your business will likely utilize. If you require assistance which better fits the services offered by one of our partner organizations, we will refer you to the appropriate resources. Once the intake form is complete, you can schedule an intake meeting with our staff to discuss resources and opportunities that meet your needs. The intake process, including the initial intake meeting, has a fee of $50.00.
