The Entrepreneurial Council

Alicia White
Entrepreneurial Council Chair

The mission of the Entrepreneurial Council is to provide guidance, assistance and support to individuals who want to create, sustain and grow their business.

This committee is a group of leaders from all types of organizations in Hoover that will be on hand to assist the city of Hoover Economic Development Manager, Greg Knighton. This committee is working toward the ideas of assisting workforce development initiatives with the Riverchase Career Connections Center (RC3)with Hoover High Schools, area institutions of higher education, and regional workforce initiatives. This group will also be investigating ways to help the city with community development initiatives. One such idea is working to designate a portion of the city as a Main Street Alabama City. Also, this committee will work with the city of Hoover toward the idea of connecting small businesses, entrepreneurs, and corporations on other key issues related to economic development to positively impact the business community in Hoover.
