John Moore

Greenville, South Carolina
Fifteen years after a career in major brand marketing, bank auditing, and startups, I found myself hacking my hometown Chamber of Commerce and building a new approach to economic development for Greenville S.C. That effort, NEXT, builds the entrepreneur ecosystem in the Upstate region and supports innovative entrepreneurs who get up every day attempting to change the world.

Talk to me about how communities can support high-impact entrepreneurship and the common pitfalls to avoid - like building expensive new facilities and waiting for the growth ventures to fill them up.
