• High Point Rising!

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

    Reneece Huntley, Administrative Assistant to High Point Police Chief Ken Shultz, was honored with the 2018 Businesswoman of the Year award at the Business High Point-Chamber of Commerce annual Women’s Business Luncheon.

    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.

    On Friday, June 8th, Business High Point – Chamber of Commerce (BHP Chamber) in partnership with the High Point Community Foundation (HPCF) held a press conference at Oak View Elementary School to unveil and launch a new website (www.schoolsinhighpoint.org).
