The Harbor Entrepreneur Center (EC) in Charleston, SC has opened the application process for its annual accelerator program with some exciting changes this year.
Perhaps the biggest development is the decision to require the 2022 cohort to stay in residence at the Harbor EC in the Epic Center on Sam Rittenberg Boulevard for a longer period of time than previous years. The April to September residency fosters an enhanced integration of the curriculum-driven program, mentorship by the Harbor EC’s tribe of proven entrepreneurs and subject-matter experts, and more time for the cohort companies to absorb and implement the wealth of advice they receive.
All participants will receive a small initial investment from a pool of $100,000 upon entering the program. In exchange, the eight selected start-ups: (1) must be fully committed to growing their business by attending all Harbor Accelerator events; and (2) must sign a confidentiality agreement to allow for maximum vulnerability, transparency, and growth of their business during participation in the program.
More information, including a link to the application that is due March 10, can be found here.
