At the intersection of two major highways, US Route 29 and US Route 33, Greene County is a dynamic and growing community situated in the heart of Virginia.  In addition to this excellent highway infrastructure, Greene County is fewer than four miles from the Charlottesville-Albemarle Airport.  As the gateway to Charlottesville, northern Virginia and Washington, DC, and the Blue Ridge, Greene County businesses have access to markets in every direction. 

The federal government is much closer to Greene County than it may seem.  With the Rivanna Station, which houses a branch of the Defense Intelligence Agency and the National Ground Intelligence Center, just across the border, Greene County businesses have opportunities to sell to and contract with these agencies.  

Educational opportunities and workforce services are also closer than ever in Greene County.  In August 2012, the Eugene Giuseppe Branch of the Piedmont Virginia Community College opened to bring higher education opportunities to Greene County residents.  This state-of-the-art facility is enhancing the skills of Greene County’s workforce to better support businesses in the new economy. 

With the backdrop of the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains, Greene County businesses in industries ranging from product research to defense and security develop new and innovative products and services to bring to the market.  Greene County is the ideal location for businesses seeking to join a growing economic ecosystem.
