Transform GSO, Launch Greensboro partner to create inspiring space, programming for entrepreneurs
(Greensboro, NC) —It’s a good time to be an entrepreneur in Greensboro.
As Transform GSO expands into The Gateway building, tripling its downtown footprint, the Greensboro Chamber of Commerce announces that Launch Greensboro, its entrepreneur initiative, will partner with the co-working space to dramatically increase support and services for area entrepreneurs.
Transform GSO currently occupies 11,000 square feet on West Lewis Street where it launched in 2015 as the city’s premier co-working space. With its expansion into The Gateway building next door, the company adds another 30,000 square feet of flexible office, meeting, and events space.
In this unique and collaborative environment, Launch Greensboro, whose many programs have helped multiple area start-ups with counsel and capital, brings its operational and programming expertise. The partnership creates a dynamic opportunity for the area’s early-stage and growing entrepreneurs who will find what they need to bring their ideas to life — inspiring, well-equipped office space, a network of like-minded entrepreneurs, and proven programs from Launch Greensboro.
“The Greensboro Chamber and Launch Greensboro are thrilled to partner with Transform GSO,” said Brent Christensen, President & CEO of the Greensboro Chamber of Commerce. “In 2020, we worked with more than 340 companies and 370 individuals through Launch Greensboro’s programming and can’t think of a better partnership to help us expand our reach than Transform GSO.”
For downtown developer and co-founder of Transform GSO, Andy Zimmerman, the partnership is particularly gratifying. “As an entrepreneur myself I have a soft spot for those who have a dream and want to go after it. This partnership puts all the pieces together. Incredible, inspiring workspace at The Gateway building combined with the fabulous programming and support from Launch Greensboro. It’s a big day for entrepreneurs and for downtown Greensboro.”
