5th Annual Wiregrass Economic Resource Summit

Dothan Civic Center
The 5th Annual Wiregrass Economic Resource Summit will be held on Wednesday, September 17, 2014 at the Dothan Civic Center from 7:30am – 12:30pm. Formerly called the Economic Summit on Jobs, the Wiregrass Economic Resource Summit strives to “Sell, Sustain, and Strengthen the Wiregrass Economy Through Dialogue, Information and Resources.”

Individuals who are interested in this free and informative summit can begin registering online on August 18, 2014 at

When registering, participants will select to join one of five teams that fits their area of interest:

Small Business, Entrepreneurship, Downtown Revitalization, Quality of Life, and Workforce Development. Each team will foster a dialogue that focuses on the challenges of the specific team issue, while also identifying strategies that will improve and/or solve the issue.

This year’s summit will feature two new components. The first is the Wiregrass Shark Tank competition. This friendly competition will give one entrepreneur the opportunity to walk away from the summit with an actual cash prize! The second new aspect of the summit is the Resource Fair, which is designed to showcase the local resources available for individuals who want to start a business or are looking for ways to progress their existing business.

The guest speaker for this year’s Summit is Travis Perry, inventor of the Chord Buddy. Perry is a Dothan native with a booming entrepreneurial idea that exemplifies hard work and success.
There is no cost to participate and breakfast will be provided. Please visit our website at to register online, view the agenda, submit an entry for the
Wiregrass Shark Tank competition, or review descriptions of the five teams.

This is an exciting time for Dothan and the Resource Summit provides an opportunity for all citizens to be part of the discussions and the development of strategies for future business growth and development. This is a community effort and success is dependent upon participants who are willing to work towards a common goal.
The 5th Annual Wiregrass Economic Resource Summit is hosted by the City of Dothan, the Dothan Area Chamber of Commerce, and Troy University’s Sorrell College of Business
