Tales from Technology Entrepreneurs

Bloomberg recently dubbed Greenville as the "Silicon Valley of the South." According to Bloomberg,

"This city, a onetime hub for textile and apparel production, seems to have found the answer to the question confounding the U.S. right now: How do you revive postindustrial towns and make them part of the knowledge economy?"

How is the Greenville community supporting this technology ecosystem? How are we supporting our technology entrepreneurs and our local business? Do we have the infrastructure and talent to support this growth?

Join us for our February salon as we discuss these issues.


Our Presenters

Michael Mino
Building Entrepreneurial Ecosystems in the Carolinas

Michael is a serial entrepreneur who has founded and grown a number of technology-based start-ups. His most recent re-startup, PropertyBoss Solutions, was sold to a private equity firm in 2016.

His electrical engineering and finance MBA education help him navigate that exciting intersection of building ventures by solving problems with technology. He started his career developing factory automation for large businesses including Kodak, Xerox, and Black and Decker.

Boards he has served on include Clemson’s Rutland Institute for Ethics, Institute for Global Road Safety and Security (IGRSS), ORMEC Systems Corp, and InnoVision Awards.  While scouting for the next ad-venture, he facilitates courses in entrepreneurship and technology innovation in the Clemson MBA and CUICAR programs and mentors start-ups in the region.

TEDxGreenville was the first independently organized TEDx event in South Carolina. It all started in 2010 when a diverse, passionate group of TED enthusiasts from around the community came together with the singular goal of bringing an educational and inspirational TED-like experience to Upstate residents.

After many months of hard work and more than a few late night planning and brainstorming sessions, TEDxGreenville 2010 launched to a sold-out crowd. The result was a brain-teasing, inspiration-filled, day-long event unlike anything Greenville has ever experienced… and TEDxGreenville was born.

Now in its tenth year, the TEDxGreenville movement is igniting passions and building bridges like never before, while highlighting the incredible people and organizations that make the Upstate of South Carolina one of the best places to live on the planet. Yep, we said it.
