• High Point Rising!

    Discover all the ways High Point is on the rise through the efforts of Business High Point - Chamber of Commerce.

    Prominent local business leaders are launching a 100,000-square-foot innovation center for entrepreneurs. HP365, located in a former hosiery mill adjacent to a new minor-league ballpark slated for completion next spring, will include a coworking space, a 3D printing lab and a materials library — a collection of fabric, wood and other samples used in furniture, interiors and fashion design — when it opens in the fall.

    As part of a community-wide effort to revitalize downtown High Point, a global innovation and entrepreneurship center geared toward the furniture industry is expected to be partially open by the October furniture market. An initiative called HP365 operating under the Business High Point-Chamber of Commerce, the center will be housed in the 100,000-square-foot former Adams Millis hosiery mill.

    When you step inside the headquarters of HP365, you might think you’re in a typical downtown showroom. But the new entrepreneurial center and co-working space is being designed to function unlike any other type of furnishings venture in High Point, or anywhere else for that matter.
