The Entrepreneurship Council is a grass-roots education and advocacy group for entrepreneurs. It has worked in creative partnership with other organizations with overlapping interests, notably the Mixson Business Center, Dothan Area Chamber of Commerce, City of Dothan, Wallace Community College, and the Center for Entrepreneurship and Economic Innovation at Troy University. The organization began in 2010 as the Entrepreneurship Group, one of several focus groups of the annual Economic Summit on Jobs, spearheaded by Dothan Mayor Mike Schmitz. Since 2014, the Entrepreneurship Council has operated autonomously, regularly coordinating entrepreneurial education and hosting networking events in the community.
