2021 Pique
Sep 27 @ 1:00 pm – 5:30 pm
Huguenot Mill and Loft


pique: stimulate (interest or curiosity)
Join other young professionals from across the Upstate as we pique your interest for impacting our community and region.

The ten county Upstate—Abbeville, Anderson, Cherokee, Greenville, Greenwood, Laurens, Oconee, Pickens, Spartanburg, and Union counties—are home to numerous young professionals. Young professionals are 23–38 years old and will make up more than half of the workforce, with Generation X making up most of the other half. Giving this particular group the ability to connect, network and come together is critical for the future of the Upstate.

For this reason, Ten at the Top realized the importance of creating an opportunity for young professionals from across the Upstate to connect with each other, meet Upstate business and community leaders, and have access to valuable personal and professional development opportunities. Five years ago, Ten at the Top began hosting an annual regional young leaders event called Pique, with the goal of bringing together existing young professional groups from across the Upstate.

Ten at the Top is a nonprofit that promotes regional collaboration to improve quality of life and economic vitality in the Upstate of South Carolina.

Approximately 300 young leaders from across the ten counties of the Upstate are expected to attend. Ten at the Top board members and executives representing Upstate businesses and organizations will also be in attendance.
