How it Works
The SC Launch program provides a framework to grow South Carolina's innovation economy by providing mentoring, funding, commercialization assistance and the resources necessary to successfully launch start-ups in the state.
In order to fulfill its mission to enrich the state's innovation economy, SC Launch invests its net revenues and an annual $6 million from the Industry Partnership Fund into qualified, South Carolina-based technology companies.
Companies meeting the requirements can apply for acceptance into the program. Once you've applied, the regional SC Launch manager will contact you to go over your application. Depending on the outcome, you may be invited to present to the SC Launch team at a "Company Review" meeting. These meetings occur monthly, either in Columbia, Greenville or the Charleston area and will determine your acceptance into the program.
