Local innovators honored during Masters series event
10 entrepreneurs recognized during program
Derrick and Danielle Case tell the story of their business, Dress Up, Wednesday morning to audience members at the Whalen Auditorium at Brenau East in Gainesville. The couple, along with eight other entrepreneurs were honored at the Masters on Innovation program.
The 10 entrepreneurs honored Wednesday at Featherbone Communiversity may have come from different backgrounds. The products and services they offer may vary — from interior design to produce to auto parts. But they all got one thing in common, said Carroll Turner, director of the Manufacturing Development Center at Lanier Technical College: “They don’t understand the words ‘I can’t.’” Among those honored as Masters of Innovation at the morning ceremony were individuals who, according to Suzanne Erickson, Brenau University’s College of Business & Mass Communication dean, “have had a vision and were able to execute on that vision.”
