Ready to judge a pitch competition featuring Charleston’s newest innovators? In mid-August, The Harbor Entrepreneur Center selected seven startup businesses to participate in the sixth cohort of the Harbor Accelerator Program , a 14-week “bootcamp” for founders of innovative and scalable startups. These seven companies will culminate their participation in the program on November 17th at The American Theater for “Pitch to the People”- Charleston’s first ever pitch event where the audience decides the winner via text-in voting.
Throughout the duration of the Harbor Accelerator program, the following companies were provided tremendous resources and support to grow their businesses quickly, test the market, and become viable: Mama Lights , Torpsy , Badfish TV , Barista Vending , The Southern Trapper , Rad Tab , and Vaetas . This included free workspace, weekly curriculum sessions, pitch practice, a team of entrepreneur mentors who have each founded and scaled at least one multi-million dollar enterprise, and much more. These companies will each take the stage to pitch their companies on November 17th and showcase their growth in the program.
The event will take place from 4-6 PM at the American Theater located at 446 King Street in Downtown Charleston. General Admission tickets are $10 and include one free drink at the after-party from 6-8PM at Republic Garden & Lounge at 462 King Street. Tickets and more information can be found HERE
