The Chamber extends a huge “Thumbs Up” to Greenville County Council for approving funds to support Greenville Tech’s Enterprise Campus! After careful study, Council worked hard and drilled down to find the funds to support this catalytic project for our community which is essential to our future success. Among the important things the Enterprise Campus will do for the Greenville business community and the community as a whole are: - create a pipeline of qualified workers for advanced manufacturing - serve as a recruitment tool for new industry and young people making career decisions - provide accelerator space for manufacturing entrepreneurs, and - give industry access to prototyping capabilities.

Establishing this innovative learning environment to strengthen and expand our local employment base by increasing the supply of skilled labor force, accelerating the expansion of existing manufacturers and supporting the startup and growth of new companies, especially in manufacturing will benefit us all. Thank you, Greenville County Council, for your support of this project.
