It’s only the second of five planned facilities across the state — but Thursday night Rock Hill’s new Technology Incubator opened its doors for the first Idea Night.
The center matches high-tech start-up businesses with the research and development resources of Clemson University in hopes of shortening the time and cost associated with turning an idea into reality.
David Warner runs the facility operating on the fifth floor of the Citizens’ Building in downtown Rock Hill.
Omar McCrorey has a method of developing a hyper-local advertising network and says the feedback was quite useful.
If ideas like McCrorey’s are selected to be a part of the incubator, they would have access to a wide range of resources offered by Clemson University. Rock Hill’s incubator is the second of five planned facilities across the state.
Warner says nights like Thursday’s will be scheduled on a monthly basis and are free of charge.
Start-ups, if selected to be a part of the incubator, would pay $200 a month to access the center’s resources and facilities.
