Experts hash out what entrepreneurial success means for Greenville
Furman University’s Bryan Davis, executive director of The Hill Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, was part of a panel that addressed innovation in an event kicking off the annual retreat for Greenville City Council. Other experts taking the stage were Carlos Phillips, president and CEO of the Greenville Chamber of Commerce; Lelia King, executive director of Build Carolina; and Eric Weissmann, executive director of NEXT Upstate. Rhonda Rawlings, community director of Mill Village Ministries, led the discussion.
In a Greenville Journal article, Davis said the sheer draw of Greenville is an opportunity for city leaders. “Part of our specialty is that people want to be here. And so, how are we leveraging the entrepreneurial talent that wants to move here and be here to grow new ventures?”
