Charleston Mayoral Candidates To Share Ideas On Tech

Six candidates seeking to be the next Mayor of Charleston will come together at a tech mixer to share their ideas regarding accelerating the growth of the city’s tech economy.

The Mayoral Candidate Mixer will take place at the Digital Corridor’s Flagship2 business incubator on Thursday, September 10, at 6pm.

The candidates will also be listening to some of the challenges facing Charleston’s rapidly growing tech scene. Two-hundred members of the tech community are expected to attend the event, which is being sponsored by local tech companies Bibliolabs, BoomTown, Blue Acorn and PeopleMatter.

Charleston’s tech community has grown from a handful of companies in 2001 to 300+ companies and now accounts for approximately 5% of the regional economy.

“The energy in the Charleston tech scene right now is magnetic,” said Grier Allen, CEO of BoomTown. “From the explosive growth of tech companies to the rise of organizations championing their initiatives, there is an incredible sense of community and opportunity. It is our hope that this meeting between tech industry leaders and Charleston mayoral candidates will further identify our collective priorities for ensuring this sector’s continued growth and expanding the opportunities it brings for all.”

The Digital Corridor is a creative initiative to attract, nurture and promote Charleston’s tech economy through a combination of technology enabled initiatives and business incentives, private business support and member- driven programming.

The event will be streamed live Stre.am, an app developed in Charleston that allows users everywhere to stream and share live video with their mobile device.
