The fall air had a feeling of anticipation as Rock Hill Economic Development Corporation held their annual retreat on October 26th. Panel members discussed new ideas as well as revisited plans such as a street car that would bridge Winthrop and downtown Rock Hill, crossing through the textile corridor. The Hive and Clemson University’s technology incubator program were discussed as newly, anticipated development projects. Jason Broadwater, founder of the Hive and serving as one of seven panelists, provided his view of the new economy. Broadwater states that in the new economy it will be the individual, with their entrepreneurial spirit, that creates new companies rather than the old model where it was the companies who brought the people (jobs).
