Wilson Officials Develop Plan for Innovative Future

June 22, 2017

When Wilson was named along with Asheville, Greensboro, Pembroke and Wilmington as an InnovateNC city in 2015, the differences between the communities were more obvious than the similarities. Now the cities have a common thread — an intentional approach to attract innovative thinkers and entrepreneurs. “What I’m excited about is with this level of intentional action around a fairly enlightened vision, Wilson can be a model for other micropolitan communities across the state,” said Christopher Gergen, one of the founding partners of InnovateNC. “If we can help more communities get on the path of Wilson and follow its lead, I think North Carolina will be better off.”
