SMART Center
Welcome to The SMART Center. We help you connect and grow.  

The SMART Center is a multi-use, historic facility born out of the Greenville SMART Initiatives. The building has been repurposed for community good, for growth, and for entrepreneurship.

All for Growth

The SMART Center features shared space for university students, community members, and businesses. This hub of productivity nurtures startups, hosts businesses, encourages innovation, and educates and connects people.

Economic Development

Linking the resources of the university and community, the SMART Center will create a robust, entrepreneur-friendly environment. Greenville SMART initiatives will help sustain and grow existing companies while encouraging the creation and growth of new businesses.

High Impact Education

Greenville SMART initiatives take education beyond the walls of traditional academia and focus on collaboration and resource connection. By reframing and reimagining higher education, Greenville University will be uniquely positioned to meet the needs of today’s diverse student population and prepare them to serve their future jobs and their communities with character and competence.
