Harbor Accelerator Sponsorship

2022 Harbor Accelerator Sponsorship Levels

The Harbor Entrepreneur Center accepts eight companies each year into the Harbor Accelerator program for a 24-week residency. The cohort companies engage in a focused curriculum curated by the Harbor’s proven entrepreneurs and receive focused, hands-on mentoring by a cadre of founders of some of the region’s most successful companies.The mentors’ input is enhanced by the Harbor’s extensive list of subject-matter experts and sponsors who provide an “on-call” wealth of knowledge to solve the challenges unique to each cohort member. The experience is rounded out by repeated practice of “The Pitch” and the opportunity to pitch for additional funding at the Charleston Angel Conference in the fall.

Sponsor the 2022 Charleston Angel Conference and Harbor Accelerator and position your brand to engage in this exciting economic development ecosystem in the Charleston region.
