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
