Openings available at business incubator

Two program slots are available for new innovators beginning in October 2016 through the Don Ryan Center for Innovation in Bluffton. The DRCI is an incubator that helps start-up and early-stage companies grow their business. The companies do not have to be technology-based, but they should be offering a product or a service that is either innovative or at least delivered in an innovative way. Ideally, the entrepreneur(s) have already had some sort of traction in their endeavor or at the very least have a business plan. They should be motivated, serious and ready to work with the DRCI for a period of 12-18 months. Email Blakely@BeaufortSC.org for more information.
