The Floyd County Economic Development Authority is owner and landlord of a new 13,250 square foot facility, which provides a variety of office, research, event and shared meeting spaces for tenants and members. The mission of the Floyd Innovation Center is to support entrepreneurs and small, innovative design and technology-driven companies. The Center features timber framing from Dreaming Creek Timber Frame Construction and furnishings by Phoenix Hardwoods, both local companies based in Floyd County. The center’s energy-efficient construction includes structurally insulated panels and solar hot water and is oriented for solar photo-voltaic panels in the future. The Floyd County Economic Development Authority raised more than $2.3 million in grant funds from the Virginia Tobacco Commission, the federal Economic Development Administration and the Appalachian Regional Commission, along with $60,000 from the County to make the center a reality. Eco Works, LLC, a green housing start-up, is the first tenant to occupy the space. Learn more about what is new at the Floyd Innovation Center!
