Mobile Entrepreneur

Mobile entrepreneurs are a loosely defined business demographic based around the growing number of persons who operate businesses independently, from nontraditional settings (many home-based).). Mobile entrepreneurs characteristically collaborate amongst themselves on larger projects. Although no industry classification strictly defines mobile entrepreneurs; they typically fall within two classifications, "Professional, Scientific, and Technical Services" (NAICS 54) or "Independent Artists, Writers, and Performers" (NAICS 7115).

Filming activities, previously identified as a viable target in the Early County 2055 study by PlaceMakers, LLC, provides an ideal illustration of mobile entrepreneurship, in which it is likely that few of the workers are employed full-time exclusively as traditional employees. Rather, a particular film project may attract a group of independently self-employed persons, each offering a unique set of skills or services for a one-time assignment. Early County is well-situated to attract mobile entrepreneurs currently residing in the Atlanta-Sandy Springs-Marietta metropolitan area.
