Wayne County Chamber of Commerce

Creative Communities Partner

Wayne County’s Digital Hub is taking it to the next level! The Digital Hub was developed in 2013 due to an immediate need for retooling of a declining manufacturing workforce. Since its opening, hundreds of residents in Wayne and surrounding counties have accessed The Hub to obtain online data entry, interface operations and customer service skills to prepare for an emerging service oriented workforce. In 2017, Wayne County will launch The Hub II to create a business resource center with the expectations of encouraging more entrepreneurial activity in Southern Tennessee and equipping students, small business owners, innovators and inventors with the skills and technology to enable them to create their own success stories. Together we’re “Growing Our Own”!
