The Inventor Center
The Inventor Center is a community-focused space for makers, artists, and thinkers to create, collaborate, and improve our region. The makerspace located in downtown Kingsport provides a safe opportunity for members and the wider community to engage through our many available classes, tools, and workspaces.
By providing access to affordable co-working and business incubation space, professional development and entrepreneurship training, mentoring, and technical resources, Create Appalachia aims to mitigate the “brain drain” caused by the large number of skilled graduates that are currently leaving the region upon graduation due to the lack of highly-paid, skilled jobs. Create Appalachia incubates not only businesses, but a thriving digital arts industry.
Pursue – PEAK pursues young professionals in our region by hosting networking events and volunteer opportunities. These events give YPs the opportunity to join PEAK, as well as the chance to meet other YPs and make a difference in our community!
Prepare – PEAK actively works to prepare young professionals through monthly professional development trainings and opportunities.
Promote – PEAK works to create a meaningful network of young professionals as we help advance our YPs in their careers.
