Facebook Community Boost, a program designed to help small businesses grow and provide more people the digital skills they need to compete in the new economy, will be held at the Greenville One Center May 29 through June 1. Registration is now open online for the free event.

Facebook announced the program in November and selected Greenville as one of the first five cities to host a community boost event. By the end of this year, 30 other cities across the country will have hosted similar events, according to a news release.

Greenville was selected as an early stop for the initiative because of its growing entrepreneurial and small business community, the release said. A Facebook study of the working population in Greenville shows 64% are somewhat or very interested in gaining digital skills. The study also shows 69% of job seekers in the area would be interested in attending a free digitals skills seminar or event that may be helpful in growing a small business.
