Co-work Space Now Available to the Public at the Conway Innovation Center.
Conway, SC- October 24, 2019–The 5th T Innovation Group, operator of the Conway Innovation Center, is pleased to announce additional business services starting at Conway Innovation Center. The Center will begin offering co-working space to entrepreneurs, freelancers and remote workers on November 4, 2019. Coworking spaces, or shared work spaces, are locations where affordable office space is provided for individuals looking for a work environment with a community atmosphere. At the Conway center, located at 1119 Third Ave, use of a small conference room, wi-fi, a lounge and kitchenette are included in the $10 per day fee. Weekly and monthly rates are also available.
Jan Silverman, Director of the Center, said that most larger cities and innovative communities have one or more co-working spaces, but there are none currently available on the Grand Strand.
“We believe co-working space is the next step to advance our goal to build innovative companies and sustainable communities and we have the added advantage of being in the heart of downtown Conway, with its fantastic restaurants and wonderful shopping opportunities,” said Silverman.
Additionally, for small teams and startups who want to take advantage of flexible private space, there are small offices available for monthly rent. Office tenants have extended hours for use of their space as well as all of the amenities available those co-working in the space. Cost of the private offices varies with the needs of the tenant and the size of the space.
“Not only does the 5th T continue to grow by providing these services,” said Michael H. Roberts, President of the Board of the 5th T, “but by the addition of new members to our Board of Directors – who can act as a part of our overall mentoring team.” Veysel Gokbel, a Ph.D. candidate from the University of Pittsburgh and a startup consultant, and Monica Gray, an Associate Professor in the Engineering Science program at Coastal University, have joined the Board, Roberts said.
The Conway Innovation Center is a business incubation center that focuses on the development of emerging technology, life science, information technology and service businesses. It is designed to foster entrepreneurial growth and sustainable companies in the Grand Strand. It also offers small business loans through its partnership with Community Works of Greenville.
The CIC is a public/private economic development effort, which is funded by the regional business community, our major educational institutions and other leading private foundations and is administered through the Fifth T Innovation Group, a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. The Fifth T also operates another business incubator, the Georgetown Innovation Center, in downtown Georgetown, SC.
