MONTGOMERY, W.Va. — BridgeValley Community and Technical College will open its “Generate Renew Innovate Design” space, or GRID, on Oct. 12-13.
Officials see GRID as a place where creative energy, civic spirit and resources will converge to unleash innovation, seek new enterprises and invest in the region’s people and the city’s downtown. GRID is a unique concept that combines the robust elements of a business accelerator with the creative environment of a Makerspace. Machining tools and equipment will be available to infuse a once-popular arts culture with fresh ideas and networking opportunities.
“The GRID offers a space to generate creative and entrepreneurial opportunities for our community members,” BridgeValley President Eunice Bellinger said in a press release. “By bringing experiential learning and apprenticeships to the region, BridgeValley is innovating the way education is delivered to our resident artists and community.”
