What's Happening at the Corridor?

Dear Friends of the BDC,

March brought forth an incredible showcase of our community's collaborative spirit during Beaufort Tech Week. One of our standout contributions to this weeklong festival was Techstars Startup Weekend, a high-octane pitch-a-thon that truly embodied the essence of innovation. We are thrilled to share the highlights of this event with you!

Let's talk numbers: 87 attendees, 15 brilliant ideas pitched, 3 dynamic teams formed, and the generous support of 16 sponsors. These statistics reflect not just participation but the collective energy and enthusiasm that fueled this remarkable weekend.

The competing teams showcased a diverse range of ideas, including BarkLink, Words of Beaufort, and MySafeCyber. BarkLink proposed a concept aimed at sourcing funding for animal shelters through crowdsourced dog food purchases, while Words of Beaufort presented an app designed to provide walking history lessons about Beaufort's rich heritage. MySafeCyber, a cybersecurity company focused on aiding small businesses with their cyber needs, emerged victorious.

The event was a resounding testament to Beaufort's thriving tech ecosystem, from groundbreaking startup pitches to the palpable buzz of our community coming together. It's a testament to the vibrant talent and innovative ideas that continue to shape the landscape of our city and beyond.

As we continue on this journey of growth and progress, we're eager to keep you informed about the latest developments and initiatives within the Beaufort Digital Corridor. Expect updates on local startups, upcoming events, and exciting opportunities for collaboration that showcase the remarkable strides we're making together.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude for your unwavering support and dedication to making Beaufort a beacon of innovation and growth.
