9.19.13 Private Sector Initiatives to Educate Small Business Owners and Entrepreneurs. On Thursday September 19, 2013, at 10:00 A.M., the Committee on Small Business Subcommittee on Economic Growth, Tax and Capital Access held a hearing titled, “Private Sector Initiatives to Educate Small Business Owners and Entrepreneurs.” The purpose of the hearing was to review private sector training and mentorship programs that are providing education to small business owners and entrepreneurs across the nation, and their effects on small business growth and job creation.

Servosity has benefited from working closely with a private sector organization, NEXT Innovation Center, in Greenville, South Carolina which was built to help businesses like Servosity succeed. Stevens not only spoke as a representative from the disaster recovery and backup technology space, but he also spoke as an entrepreneur that started his own technology company with minimal outside investment.

“Without organizations like NEXT, for entrepreneurs like myself, building a successful business with super strong growth rates like we have seen here at Servosity over the last three years, things would be much more difficult. The resources and contacts that are available to me as the owner and CEO are fantastic. The mentors and relationships I have built through NEXT have been tremendously helpful in growing our business,” said Damien Stevens, Servosity, founder and CEO.

Stevens believes his testimony as a thought leader in a high-growth industry can benefit all entrepreneurs that have started or will start a business here in the United States. With government having an understanding of other ways that businesses can be developed through the support of local organizations like NEXT, it will only open doors to stronger business growth within our own borders driving job creation to boost the economy.

“We at NEXT are excited about the entrepreneurial momentum being built here in the Greenville/Upstate S.C. area and the opportunity to help companies like Servosity blossom into technology leaders in their respective industries. Our goal is to continue helping make dreams a reality for very bright and motivated entrepreneurs and to leverage the unique community spirit here to build an even stronger ecosystem for growth companies in the future,” said John Moore, Executive Vice President with the Greenville Chamber and NEXT.
