Forward Impact helps communities develop intentional strategies for building out their entrepreneurial ecosystems. Forward Impact worked closely with Moore County in North Carolina to help them launch Moore Forward. Learn more about Moore Forward here.
The Moore Forward mission is to recruit, develop, grow, and maintain high-impact, high-growth enterprises in our region that create enduring economic and social impact in Moore County and beyond.
The Moore Forward co-working space exists on the second floor of the Magnolia Place in the heart of downtown Pinehurst. This space currently consists of four offices of roughly 300 sq.ft. each.
Each office can be subdivided into four spots, with desks and chairs provided by Moore Forward, for individuals who want a collaborative environment and way to network and feed off the benefits that Moore Forward provides and the amenities of the Magnolia Place. The offices also can be combined into one large open space for cross-pollination with different sectors interacting with each other.
Using the initial innovation clusters that we have identified: wellness, military, and technology – the space could be divided up between those three clusters with new initiatives beginning their incubation in the space.
In addition to the office spaces, Magnolia Place also provides a separate meeting room, conference room, kitchen area, mail room, reception area, wifi, and is in the heart of downtown Pinehurst--a benefit that will grow more apparent as we approach the 2014 US Opens.
