About the Greensboro Partnership Entrepreneurship Initiative


The Greensboro Partnership Entrepreneurship Initiative cultivates a fertile environment for companies to start and grow in the Greater Greensboro area by linking entrepreneurs with the critical resources they need to be successful.

In 2008, the Greensboro Partnership, along with strategic community partners, began to ramp up the energy behind entrepreneurship as a vital economic development tool. Our team is the driving force behind our mission to CONNECT entrepreneurs with the wealth of business resources in this area; to CHAMPION the philosophy of economic gardening and represent the individual needs of entrepreneurs; and to CREATE innovative programs, partnerships, and possibilities that will transform Greensboro’s economy. The Greensboro Partnership focuses on three areas for entrepreneurs: access to capital, A HUG Strategy (Help U Grow), and Building a Community of Entrepreneurs.
