From here you can change the world. That’s a big promise. But one the City of Greenville, South Carolina says it can deliver to entrepreneurs across the country. Just as Greenville has been recognized as one of the nation’s hottest tourist and lifestyle destinations, its business climate has become an attraction of its own. Greenville’s unique entrepreneurial support system provides all the resources, mentoring and access that founders need to grow, scale, and thrive.
The City is taking a more aggressive stance in attracting businesses and entrepreneurs through its “From Here You Can Change the World” branding and media outreach effort, which will share stories of local entrepreneurs like Carlo White and Paige McPheely, for example. The message is simple: Greenville is extremely competitive in all the ways cities appeal to new and expanding businesses with economic development initiatives, tax incentives, infrastructure, access to funding, incubator programs, transportation hubs and workforce development, but, unlike many cities, each business and each founder truly matters and can have an immediate impact here.
Greenville is big enough to offer all that any company might need or want to succeed but collegial enough to ensure that each business matters and can leave its mark.John McDonough, Greenville City Manager
“We also understand the founder mindset – what makes them tick, what drives them forward, and what holds them back – and have developed what’s needed to address each area. Here, companies are never alone on the chopping block of trial and error,” continued McDonough.
