The GRID in Montgomery
BridgeValley Community Technical College


What is The GRID?

A special place where creative energy, civic spirit, and resources converge to unleash innovation, seek new enterprises and invest in the region’s people and the city’s downtown.

A unique concept that combines the robust elements of a business accelerator with the creative environment of a Makerspace.

  • Transform ideas into art or new business ventures or inventions – the possibilities are endless.
  • A hub for artisans where creativity flows
  • Small-scale industrial manufacturing and specialty agriculture equipment for production
  • Gathering spaces and workshops to foster organic support networks
  • A public access point to high-speed internet in Montgomery and surrounding communities

Innovative access beyond our region - Amtrak provides critical linkages for entrepreneurs through connections to Charleston, Raleigh, Washington D.C., and Chicago.
