Become A Mini America Founding Pioneer

Why fly across the country when you can walk from New York to L.A. in as little as 48 minutes? Impossible? Not at Mini America Park (MAP), the up-and-coming educational theme park in development just outside of Atlanta, Ga. Dubbed “a park with a purpose,” MAP not only includes landmarks and monuments from each state in miniature, but strives to educate visitors of all ages about America’s past, present and future.

The brain child of Sandy Springs-based entrepreneur Eric de Groot, MAP will be modeled after other mini parks throughout the world. Yet Mini America is about much more than entertainment. In addition to the for-profit entertainment business, the project includes a non-profit component focused on education and environmental sustainability. Mini America is committed to developing solutions to the challenges facing America, be they the environment, job creation, or education.

Right now, Mini America remains in the virtual phase, but you can help bring it to life. How can you show your support? Be one of the first 56 people from each of the 50 states to build the Mini American Network. Known as Project 5650, this program asks the 56 Mini America Pioneers to pledge a minimum of $50 to become a part of history in the making. Once you join, you’ll be:

  • Supporting American-made goods and services.
  • Eligible to join the virtual ‘Mini’ Advisory Board, giving you the opportunity to shape the project in its pre-developmental phase. You’ll receive regular updates, will be asked for your input, and can help ensure your state is well represented.
  • Contributing to the strength of the American economy as you connect with other people like you. Networking and supporting entrepreneurs are an essential part of Project 5650.
  • Involved in your state as a mini (America) representative, if you are interested in joining as a leader.
  • Eligible for several exclusive benefits available to Mini America Pioneers. For example, one lucky Pioneer will have a street named after him or her.

By contributing as little as $50, you can be the first in your state to join a foundation that strives to connect, transform, and build this great country.
