Doing Business Here

Greenville is a fast-growing regional hub for medicine, legal and financial services, retail, education, and culture. What really sets us apart from other fast-growing mid-sized “college towns” is our ability to offer premium business assets at such an affordable cost. Approximately one-third of the area residents have a bachelor’s degree or higher and East Carolina University and Pitt Community College provide state-of-the-art business and industry training programs around, yet we also offer very competitive wage rates and a friendly business climate.

If you are seeking to open or expand a business in the Greenville M.S.A., the Office of Economic Development is prepared to assist your business needs in the following ways:

  • Find suitable buildings or sites for your new or expanding business operations
  • Connect your business to local and State incentives and business development programs
  • Link your business to workforce expansion and training resources
  • Help your business to navigate planning, zoning, and other local regulatory requirements

East Carolina University is closely aligned with the community and region we call home, and we accept the challenges of eastern North Carolina as our own. We are 'open for business' collaborating daily with our education, industry, government, military and community partners. Whether preparing an innovation workforce, fueling new science and technologies, launching young entrepreneurs, creating new products, strengthening communities, or supporting job and investment creation, we remain committed economic development partners.
