An online innovation hub has been launched by the South Carolina Department of Commerce's Office of Innovation.
The hub can be accessed online at www.scinnovationhub.com.
The new site is a way for individuals and business owners and representatives to connect with one another, to find resources and to post new stories, upcoming events and other useful information for innovators all over the Palmetto State. Users can register for access to the site through their existing LinkedIn profiles.
“Providing the support and infrastructure necessary for our entrepreneurial, technology-based companies to grow is critical to the future of our economy,” South Carolina Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt said. “This new Innovation Hub allows those in this dynamic sector to engage with one another, advancing both their organizations and our state.”
Innovators can also be part of the site's directory of technology companies and community forum; job-seekers will be able to take advantage of the site's job listings.
“We know that business doesn’t sit still," Hitt said. "It’s constantly changing and evolving. This new tool — a front door to companies working in the technology sector and the knowledge economy — fulfills many requests from the entrepreneurial community for a statewide resource, allowing these rapidly-growing firms to connect and help them succeed."
