Dalton Innovation Accelerator

The Wright School of Business partners with the Dalton Innovation Accelerator to connect upper division business students with both nascent and established entrepreneurs. With a prominent downtown Dalton presence, the office at the DIA is a visible reminder of the WSOB's support for the local business community and the Downtown Dalton Development Association. The relationship offers students the opportunity to engage with the best regional business minds in the context of project based work to improve new venture creation. The synergy of the WSOB and DIA partnership includes civic, community and support common goals and near limitless touch points between involved organizations. We are excited to see what the future holds for this project. 

The DIA also hosts a summer camps for kids at the Junior Achievement Discovery Center.  Students can participate in either the Pitch Camp or the Accelerator Camp.
