The event will celebrate the community's entrepreneurial spirit and honor four individuals who are the embodiment of that spirit. Honorees are Marion Crawford, president of of Crawford Strategy; Walter Davis, co-chief executive officer, director, and a founding member of CertusBank N.A.; Jennie Johnson, executive director of Liberty Fellowship; and Barbara B. League, chairman of the board and chief executive officer of G.F. LEAGUE COMPANY, INC.
"Spinx is proud to partner with the Greenville Tech Foundation in recognizing our local entrepreneurs. The Greenville community fosters the entrepreneurial spirit and we are lucky to have such strong business leadership," said Stewart Spinks, founder and chairman of the board for The Spinx Co.
"We have a strong base of entrepreneurs in the Upstate, and their numbers continue to grow. These individuals have made huge contributions to the thriving business climate and good quality of life we enjoy in Greenville," said Bob Howard, president of the Greenville Tech Foundation.
The Entrepreneurs Forum was launched in 1999. Since that time, 82 entrepreneurs have been recognized at the event.
