Innovative Dialogue for Economic Advancement (IDEA) is a communication forum developed by a small business owner to foster collaborative solutions for regulatory reform, especially on the local level, for the benefit of all small business owners in Greenville and Anderson counties. IDEA is run by volunteer business owners and accepts NO grant money or governmental funding. We are NOT a lobbying firm. It is not our mission to lobby for particular business sectors or individual interests. We believe this collaborative, non-confrontational approach minimizes conflict and maximizes effectiveness.
