We are a nonprofit organization with a Board of Directors from the public and private sectors in our community.
Our mission is economic development and our overall objective is to build a technology industry cluster in Conway and the Grand Strand Region. We accomplish that by assisting the creation of new technology, scientific, and local entrepreneurial ventures. These can have a large and positive impact on the economy and quality of life in our community by locally locating as developed enterprise.
Through our Innovation Center we will be connected to a network of technology-oriented innovation centers across South Carolina linking a network of local entrepreneurs. These companies are supported through Coastal Carolina University and the extensive list of collaborating local, regional and state partners.
