Atlanta Small Business Profile – Dave Walens, Exploring Inc.

On this week’s episode of the Atlanta Small Business Profile, small business expert Ted Jenkin speaks with Dave Walens, President and CEO of Exploring Inc.

Back in 1983, when Dave first started the business, he never thought he would one day be building large installation pieces like giant baseballs for the Atlanta Braves stadium or larger than life props for the traveling Hamilton Exhibition, but that is precisely what Exploring Inc. specializes in today. As a scenic development company from the construction side of things, Exploring Inc. works on intricately designed projects like the Great Wolf Lodge Locations to create immersive environments and experiences.
