About us

Transform GSO’s Story

In 2014, through a collaboration between the HQ Raleigh (now Raleigh Founded) team and Greensboro’s Andy Zimmerman and Ken Causey, HQ Greensboro was launched in downtown Greensboro. The goal was to build a community for entrepreneurs in the Gate City and give them flexible and affordable space. In 2020, we changed our name to Transform GSO. We chose this name because we feel it communicates the transformative power our space and amazing community brings to Greensboro.

 

In the seven years it has been in operation, Transform GSO has housed hundreds of businesses and members. Later this year, in 2021, Transform GSO will open the doors to its second location at 111 Bain Street in the historic Gateway Building, and will become the new home of the Greensboro Chamber’s Launch Greensboro program for Entrepreneurs. The partnership between Transform GSO and Launch Greensboro establishes the perfect hub for start-ups and early-stage companies in the Greensboro/Guilford County area.
