TATT Abbeville County Workshop

Growing Entrepreneurs and Small Businesses

Ten at the Top is celebrating 10 years of connecting the Upstate in 2019. As part of the 10th anniversary, TATT is holding community workshops in each of the 10 Upstate counties with each one focused on an issue of interest within that county. The program will include communities, businesses or organizations that are successfully working on that issue in other parts of the Upstate sharing insights and ideas with those interested in that specific issue within the focus county.

The Abbeville County Workshop will take place on September 9th with the focus being on Growing Entrepreneurs and Small Businesses. 

Speakers will include Erin Ouzts, Chair of Ten at the Top's Upstate Entrepreneur Support Providers Network; Dave Eldridge, CEO of Tri-County Entrepreneurial Development Corporation; and Brian "Zig" Ziegelheafer, Co-Founder and Leader of BGEN, Gaffney's small business incubator. They will provide an overview of how to build opportunities for entrepreneurs and small business owners within a community.

The Abbeville County Workshop is free and open to the public, but advance registration is requested. Lunch will be provided.
