Executive Summary - PDF
Gig-G took first place in Phase One of the Strong Cities, Strong Communities (SC2) challenge with our dynamic proposal we believe will revolutionize, catalyze and transform the economy in Greensboro.
As City officials announced our first place win in the SC2 challenge Dec. 17, we knew we had something BIG.
Ours is a proposal to transform the way businesses and communities in Greensboro operate.
At its core, Gig-G is at once a plan to bring a significant fiber optic network to the city and a new paradigm uniting economic and social development concepts with the means to an end.
Initiative was launched in 2011 to strengthen neighborhoods, towns, cities, and regions around the country by enhancing the capacity of local governments to develop and execute their economic vision and strategies, providing necessary technical assistance and access to federal agency expertise, and creating new public and private sector partnerships. This is exactly what Gig-G is all about.
Design and build an extensive gigabit speed Fiber Optic Network for local community use. Our city's high powered broadband network will emanate from downtown Greensboro. Revenue will be reinvested back into our community.
200 passionate Stakeholders, Partners, Entrepreneurs and Intrepreneurs have seen the Gig-G presentation. And this group of community partners grows every week as Gig-G has become a movement in Greensboro. We invite you to get involved.
Greensboro needs a new economic spark. Gig-G can transform our city into a premier national community – with dynamic, innovative, connected citizens who are passionate about social entrepreneurship and focused on education, good jobs, and growth.
Gig-G is building the city of the future in Greensboro.
We can support our citizens to follow their inspired, creative dreams and aspire to become entrepreneurs, artists, community health specialists, investors or nanoengineers .
