While we encourage entrepreneurship at all levels, our program is designed specifically for the serious entrepreneur looking to take his or her idea or business further. For this reason we require an application process and while only select candidates will be chosen for acceptance, our commitment is that all applicants will receive feedback from our team.
This is not a workshop. Throughout the 2 day immersion we will come together for times of strategic coaching and group interaction, however we will also maintain time and space for you to work on your business. Need to make a sales call? Absolutely, you should! Have an important project deadline to keep? Let's finish your project! Our commitment to you is an experience that carefully blends taking action and creating space for your business to evolve and grow.
Once registration is closed our panel of judges will measure each application against pre-established acceptance criteria and then notify the candidates who were accepted within the week. Even if you are not chosen, you will still receive a reply from us with feedback to encourage and help you.
We have gathered a live audience of Greer businessmen and businesswomen, city chamber members, established entrepreneurs, city administrators, and even corporate sponsors to come hear your pitch. This will be a live session in which you have the opportunity to communicate and discuss your idea/product and business model then answer questions.
The railroad industry was a historic centerpiece of the Greer economy. The old P&N Railroad train platform at the Depot in downtown was a launch point and destination for so many residents of Greer. The Platform @ Greer is meant to capture that spirit, as it is both the beginning of your entrepreneurship journey as well as a destination for growing your entrepreneurial enterprise.
Over the course of the two-day immersion we will provide space, internet, coffee, food, and the facilitation of a number of experiences we have arranged.
Absolutely! Please don't let a conflict in date/time stop you from reaching out. We would love to know what you are up to and hope you will email us or drop us a quick note via the contact us page.
