The Greenville Convention Center will be hosting the South Carolina Opportunity Zone Summit this October, a collection of business leaders, community stakeholders and industry experts coming together to discuss how to stimulate economic growth here in South Carolina.

Slated for October 10the, from 9 am to 4 pm, the event shines a light on the South Carolina Opportunity Fund.

That fund, founded last year, aims to invest communities and real estate in South Carolina that are underserved, the goal being to support economic growth in places that have been overlooked.

Senator Tim Scott, who will be speaking at the event, said in a press release that he is honored to be invited to speak at the summit, and that the Opportunity Zones are fundamental for the economic growth and prosperity of South Carolina.
