We discussed the GRID Program of Bridgevalley.
GRID stands for Generate. Renew. Innovate. Design.
Laura spoke about the ‘Sneak Peek’ held on the Montgomery campus of Bridgevalley.
A special place where creative energy, civic spirit, and resources converge to unleash innovation, seek new enterprises and invest in the region’s people and the city’s downtown.
A unique concept that combines the robust elements of a business accelerator with the creative environment of a Makerspace.
- Transform ideas into art or new business ventures or inventions – the possibilities are endless.
- A hub for artisans where creativity flows
- Small-scale industrial manufacturing and specialty agriculture equipment for production
- Gathering spaces and workshops to foster organic support networks
- A public access point to high-speed internet in Montgomery and surrounding communities
Innovative access beyond our region – Amtrak provides critical linkages for entrepreneurs through connections to Charleston, Raleigh, Washington D.C., and Chicago.
