Over the past year, the Dalton-Whitfield Diverse, Forward Thinking Economy Work Group has discussed how our community can better assist area innovators and entrepreneurs. The group has discussed many options, including implementing both virtual and traditional incubators.
At the group’s August meeting, Dalton-Whitfield County Joint Development Authority (JDA) Senior Project Manager Alex Stall presented a website that the JDA is currently developing to support small business owners. Alex explained at the meeting that University of Georgia Non-Profit Administration Masters Student Jimbo Graves has assisted him with the development of the website. In addition, Alex noted that he has requested future help from the University of Georgia in the development of a logo for the website.
Group members made several suggestions on information that the website should include. Alex promised to incorporate many of those suggestions into future phases of the project.
