About this event

Would you like to find more clients or potential investors in Charleston, SC?

It would probably help to know the most connected person and the best known and most active investor in the city and the state.

Can you imagine being named One of the Top 30 people Changing the SOUTH?

Or being named the MOST ACTIVE venture capital fund in your state?

And being recognized as a leader of a BOOMING economy where smart people want to visit and relocate to your city.

Travel and Leisure Magazine has listed Charleston as the best place to visit for TEN STRAIGHT YEARS. (Wilmington rarely makes these lists. Maybe we could learn something.)

Yes, that BUZZ factor that ATTRACTS smart people from around the WORLD!!!

Charleston has this buzz. And Wilmington is starting to. What can we learn and do better?
