The idea for the Global Opportunities (GO) Center emerged in 2012 from an Opportunity Greensboro workgroup focused on Global Entrepreneurship. From 2013 - 2015, Boundless Impact served as a catalyst for the GO Center through building support and awareness through annual Global Opportunities Summits. The vision, to establish a center for global entrepreneurship that would leverage existing local resources, gained momentum through the GO Center’s first place prize of $500,000 at the Strong Cities, Strong Communities (SC2) Economic Development Challenge.
The GO Center launched in January 2016 as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and is currently developing its first programs and initiatives. With support through the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation and the Golden Leaf Foundation, the GO Center has the potential to become North Carolina's Global Gateway.
