Three Upstate SC communities collaborating to better support entrepreneurs

Four communities in the Upstate Region of South Carolina are putting an exclamation point of entrepreneurship.

According to this article in the Upstate Business Journal, Greenville, Spartanburg and Anderson are creating a new networking group called “The Brew” and Greer is launching “IGNITE Greer” to give entrepreneurs and business owners a platform for feedback and support from their communities.

“The Brew” launched in Anderson in 2020, while Greenville and Spartanburg hosted 1 Million Cups, a Kauffman Foundation program. On March 17, Greenville and Spartanburg announced plans to transition from their 1 Million Cups networking program in favor of participating in “The Brew” with the City of Anderson.
