In 2017, Microsoft Philanthropies selected Mecklenburg, Halifax, Charlotte, Lunenburg, and Brunswick counties to be a part of the new Microsoft TechSpark program designed to support job creation through digital skills and digital transformation. The vision for the SOVA Innovation Hub was created in 2018 by Mid-Atlantic Broadband Communities Corporation (MBC) and Microsoft to be a regional connector of people, partners, and programs as Microsoft TechSpark’s signature project.

Ground was broken and construction of the SOVA Innovation Hub building began in October 2019 on the site of a former tobacco warehouse in downtown South Boston, Virginia. Construction was completed in December 2020, and the building welcomed its first coworking members in February 2021.
