What Is Business High Point, Inc.?

The mission of Business High Point, Inc. is to be the voice for the private sector, working to unite an engaged and informed business perspective to transform High Point into the single most livable, safe and prosperous community in America.
How It Works
Business High Point, Inc. is governed by a board of directors comprised of Vision Investors who pledge $20,000 annually plus seven members representing the small business community and young professionals.
