Business in your Backyard – Charleston’s Tech Ecosystem

Registration for this event is now closed. Walk-ins are welcome starting at 7:30 a.m. the day of the event.

Over the last 20 years, Charleston’s tech ecosystem has grown from a handful of companies to more than 250.  What does it take to go from startup to a powerhouse publicly traded company?

Hear from a panel of speakers hailing from prestigious local tech powerhouses, two of which are publicly traded companies, at the upcoming Business in your Backyard. They discuss the resources for a healthy and growing tech ecosystem that contains incubators, startups and full-scale campuses with thousands of employees. Learn what it takes to sustain in this ecosystem in the future and how the tech sector in our region compares to other tech hot spots.
