The Judges Choice Award Goes to…
GREER, S.C. –The Platform at Greer, an Entrepreneurship Program of Greer Development Corporation located in Greer, SC, is announcing the Business/Entrepreneur Bootcamp Class IV Winner, Falcodrin.
Falcodrin, headquartered in Greer, SC, was started by Larry McKeithan and his partner Stuart MacKenzie in 2020, and provides rapid alerts for when items that are usually out of stock come back into stock. The market is currently saturated with automated programs that purchase these items for resale at sometimes twice the MSRP. Their business goal is to assist normal people in paying reasonable prices.
McKeithan and MacKenzie stated, “It was inspiring to meet like-minded entrepreneurs from the local community from shop owners to city council members and the amount of talent that was brought in was incredible! Interacting with both people in similar situations and people who had more advanced careers and skills was an extremely valuable tool for our growth and direction. The workshop was engaging, fun, insightful, and ultimately helped us realize the immediate next steps our business needs to take for our next stage of growth.”
Greer Development Corporation Executive Director, Reno Deaton, commented, “It is rewarding to be part of assisting entrepreneurs like Falcodrin to take their businesses to the next level of growth through the assistance of our Coaches and Judges. Our vision of connecting big business with small businesses in the form of coaches and judges has seen immense success in the 18 months since our program’s beginning.”
