Mount Pleasant Mayor Linda Page and Councilman Mark Smith, along with staff, discussed the Town’s vision for the entrepreneur ecosystem.
Attendees agreed the key to building a robust economy starts with youth education and building connections with industry.
“This week alone, we have hosted a ribbon-cutting at the new Laing Middle School of Science and Technology, toured the Center for Advanced Studies at Wando High School, and now have met with a local entrepreneur dedicated to creating a tech hub in Mount Pleasant,” said Mayor Page. “What an exciting time for Mount Pleasant residents– opportunity starts at a young age and continues with high-paying, long-term career options within the Town.”
Not only a launchpad for industry, InnoLabs is also committed to inspiring a passion for engineering in local youth. Future plans include adding programming connecting children to technology, as well as the growing Mount Pleasant software community.
“We are pleased to welcome this new component to our technology pipeline and look forward to continued engagement with InnoLabs as they expand their offerings,” said the Town’s Business Development Officer, Amy Livingston.
The business outreach meetings, spearheaded by Economic Development Committee Chairman Mark Smith and supported by the Business Development Office, are a great way to connect with local businesses to understand the challenges and opportunities they face while strengthening community relationships.
