TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Community growth is linked to an active economy, and on Wednesday, the Tallahassee Chamber of Commerce presented an entrepreneurial forum to encourage young businesses and start-ups to launch in the Capital City.

In light of November being National Entrepreneurship Month, the chamber held an event to talk about their strategic plan for growing new businesses.

They also discussed, in depth, the evolution of entrepreneurship in the area over the past decade.

"We are aggressively trying to highlight these people who are taking the risk and taking the initiative to go out and start companies in our community and  want to help them in anyway we can. We're very excited to have a great display of those entrepreneurs here today,"said Jay Revell, the vice president of the Tallahassee Chamber of Commerce.

Revell says the community is seeing more start-ups and companies looking to start their journey in Tallahassee.

The event also awarded a $1,000 seed grant to three local start-ups.
