THE BEST TIME TO PLANT A TREE WAS 20 YEARS AGO.
THE SECOND BEST TIME IS NOW.
Accelerate is Greenville’s private sector-fueled economic development initiative. It exists above and beyond regular Greenville Chamber initiatives in an aggressive and forward-thinking effort to cultivate further growth. Results to date have been more than promising. We have identified four major strategies for growth to take our region into the future:
Increasing education attainment will be the foundation of Accelerate's work by implementing a Lumina Foundation-informed initiative to ensure that 60% of 25-64 year olds have a high-quality post-secondary credential or degree.
Companies keep the majority of their wealth where they’re headquartered. NEXT and the Minority Business Accelerator are building an ecosystem where risk takers and pioneers can thrive and generate high-quality jobs and wealth.
Workforce is the differentiating factor when communities compete for capital investment and jobs. The region that best solves that problem will be the one that accelerates its growth to a new level.
Investing in comprehensive economic and community data will provide meaningful insight as our community's leadership determine the path forward to building a globally competitive Upstate economy.
