Historically known for welcoming ships carrying goods that would make their way across the country, Charleston, South Carolina has long been a hub of commerce. Now, staying true to its roots, the city has transformed itself into “Silicon Harbor,” a modern-day port for technology companies that build products used all around the world. And as demand for tech talent and tech products increases across the globe, Charleston has plans to stay on top with the South Carolina Department of Commerce releasing a 2017 innovation plan earlier this month.
Since The Iron Yard first opened its doors in Charleston in 2014, we have graduated more than 200 students from eight cohorts and 16 courses. We have also built an outstanding advisory board of local companies both large and small that help us keep our finger on the pulse of the city’s thriving tech economy and hiring needs.
Today, we’d like to introduce you to one of those amazing advisory board members: Launchpeer, a development agency that helps entrepreneurs around the world build, launch and scale tech startups.
