Location

Connecting you FROM HERE

We live in an outdoor lover's paradise nestled at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains. All four seasons with a mild winter. 221 sunny days a year. Average annual temperature: 61 degrees.​

We work in a city strategically positioned to do business. A place halfway between Atlanta and Charlotte with overnight access to ship around the world. A place that supports the North American headquarters of BMW and Michelin.​

We explore from a small city with an international airport for travelers. A downtown airport for business and pleasure flights and an aviation center with high tech businesses and a world-class test track.​

YOU CAN, too.

LIVING

YOU CAN live comfortably here

U.S. News and World Report

“Most Affordable Places to Live in the U.S.” 2021-2022 #16 realestate.usnews.com​

We relax in a city surrounded by lakes, parks, and greenspace. A paved 22-mile trail to enjoy on foot or on two wheels. A beautiful waterfall in the center of downtown.

Orchard.com--an online real estate platform-- ranks Greenville #3 on its Top 15 list of places to move for a remote career.​

We rise in a city where our cost of living is 95% of the national average. A community focused on improving mobility for walkers, bikers, and bus riders. Committed to planting 1,000 trees a year. Supportive of semi-pro soccer, minor league baseball and hockey.

YOU CAN, too.


Culture

YOU CAN belong here

“#1 Friendliest City in the U.S.” Conde Nast Traveler, 2021, 2022

We gather in a city energized by a mix of cultures and languages. Public murals, sculptures, and water features that take your breath away. Museums for art-lovers and curious kids that people from across the nation celebrate.

“The South’s Best City on the Rise” Southern Living, 2022​

We celebrate in a city with indoor and outdoor entertainment venues for music, theater, and dance. Food, wine, and art festivals that draw people from around the world. A bustling downtown market with fresh produce, live music, and booths full of local makers.​

YOU CAN, too.

Education

FROM HERE you can find a workforce

We thrive in a city where education and industry work together to prepare a workforce of the future. A place with partnerships that inspire young learners. Where students pursuing advanced degrees in engineering and biotech collaborate on groundbreaking, problem-solving research. Where city-supported programs inspire and prepare people of all ages to launch their own businesses.

We grow in a city where the largest K-12 school district in the state develops innovative programs that connect classrooms to careers. Where the district is ranked 13th in the country for the number of Nationally Board-Certified teachers. Where public schools forge partnerships that give students paid opportunities to get a jump-start on their careers.​

YOU CAN, too.

Innovation

YOU CAN Engage with a Collaborative, Cutting Edge Community

We create in an innovative city where collaborative partners work to save lives, fight cancer, invent new medical devices. A place where engineers from BMW and Michelin work alongside graduate students to design safer, more sustainable cars of the future. Where companies work with educators to create customized classes and on-the-job training that build a highly skilled workforce pipeline. Where public schools offer International Baccalaureate (IB) programs, magnet academies, and specialized technical training centers. ​

We build in a city that has an innovative, collaborative ecosystem that strives to support and fund founders trying to solve big problems. A place where companies can get help recruiting, training, and retaining highly skilled employees.

We dream in a city where the sky is the limit.​

YOU CAN, too.
