Why is this initiative called The Platform at Greer?
A few years ago, economic development leaders set out to create programming for entrepreneurs and innovators that provided educational content, meaningful connections, and a support system for trailblazers and problem solvers. When deciding what to call this initiative, organizers settled on The Platform at Greer as a nod to the railroads that have moved commerce through the city for more than a century. Greer’s economy grew up around the old train depot that served as both a launching point and a destination. The Platform at Greer exists to help entrepreneurs at any stage of their journey.
