Countybank and Greenwood Capital Donate $10K to Support Entrepreneurs

(Greer, S.C.) A generous donation from the Countybank Foundation will help the Greer Development Corporation and The Platform at Greer support entrepreneurs in Upstate South Carolina.

The Platform provides programs ranging from networking events to intensive boot camps that help entrepreneurs at any stage of their journey. All of the programs pair experienced volunteers from The Platform’s corporate partners with entrepreneurs who need new tools to take their businesses to the next level. Building a culture of collaboration, support, and innovation is the ultimate goal.

Countybank executives recently presented a $10,000 donation to Greer Development Corporation Executive Director, Reno Deaton, at the branch in downtown Greer.

“The Platform at Greer relies on community partners like Countybank and Greenwood Capital to help us grow both our programs and our collaborative culture,” said Deaton. “We are grateful for their support.”
