The Pikeville-Bledsoe County Chamber of Commerce is putting a $50,000 ThreeStar grant to good use by providing an office away from home for businesses and entrepreneurs. The grant was awarded to the County by the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development (ECD).
The project is called Rural Interconnect Outpost, RIO, and is described as a multifunctional co-working space ideal for remote workers, group meetings and startup businesses. The RIO is located inside the Chamber of Commerce entrance of the Pikeville Municipal Building and officially opened Friday, April 23.
