FOR RELEASE: August 14, 2018
(CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA) – Charlotte-based SkillPop has announced their expansion to the Lake Norman area this September. This announcement comes after the company has experienced three years of growth in Charlotte with a growing demand for classes in the surrounding areas of the city.
Since launching in September of 2015, SkillPop has expanded to several other cities in the Southeast, most recently Nashville, TN. The company hosts in-person, pop-up classes and workshops on everything from marketing to photography, all taught by local experts at unique venues in the community. SkillPop has held over 2,000 classes and facilitated learning for over 20,000 students.
SkillPop’s Lake Norman launch is in partnership with The Hurt Hub@Davidson. The Hurt Hub@Davidson is a newly renovated textile mill in the heart of downtown Davidson, owned and operated by Davidson College. It is designed to serve Davidson students and faculty, as well as the broader Lake Norman community, with plenty of spaces to collaborate and be creative including classrooms, meeting spaces,
and a vibrant coworking community.
“We couldn’t be more excited to be partnering with The Hurt Hub@Davidson to bring SkillPop classes to the Lake Norman area” says Haley Bohon, Founder & CEO at SkillPop . “We’ve seen a growing demand for classes in the area, with students driving all the way down to Charlotte to learn with us. Lake Norman is such a thriving, creative community and we can’t wait to get involved.”
