Capital is a critical component for any company seeking to grow. The Digital Corridor's role is not to aggregate capital but instead to aggregate investors and make curated information available to tech entrepreneurs operating in the Beaufort community in an efficient manner. Entrepreneurs seeking capital may reach out to us at anytime for guidance and referral to possible capital resources.
Additionally, a variety of capital-related educational & pitch events are occasionally hosted by the Corridor and held at our BASEcamp facilities. Check our calendar for upcoming events. If you are interested in being added to our list of investors or presenting at an event, please contact us for more information.
