NEXT on Main officially opened its doors this week at its space on the third floor of the Bank of America building in downtown Greenville. SCRA Technology Ventures announced a significant investment in Servosity, one of the nine companies located at NEXT on Main, and celebrate its move to the new facility at a special NEXT on Main opening event Wednesday evening.
NEXT, the economic development organization dedicated to supporting high-impact entrepreneurs in the Upstate, occupies 20,000 square feet and offers tenants the same collaborative environment as the NEXT Innovation Center on Church Street, but in a compact, urban-centered location.
“NEXT entrepreneurs are making a major impact on the South Carolina economy,” said Robert Hughes, project developer with Hughes Development. “NEXT on Main will allow us to take a lot of the things that we’ve learned at the NEXT Innovation Center that have been successful and apply them to a new audience.”
NEXT on Main features an open-concept design with glass walls, multiple-sized meeting spaces with movable doors and walls, as well as phone booths offering privacy and seclusion. Tenants will also enjoy direct access to parking.
“We couldn’t be more pleased to celebrate the launch of NEXT on Main,” said John Moore, CEO of NEXT. “We thank our high-impact companies and partners in the community who collaborated with us to bring the success of the NEXT Innovation Center to this unique downtown space. We look forward to continuing to foster the development and success of the entrepreneur ecosystem in the Upstate.”
