CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — A new tech project designed to show off Charleston's technology efforts to residents and visitors alike is taking off.
Officials of Google and the City of Charleston are announcing the details Friday at a news conference at the city's Waterfront Park.
It's being attended by Mayor Joe Riley, Charleston Digital Corridor CEO Ernest Andrade and Eric Wages, the manager of the Google Data Center in Berkeley County.
The Digital Corridor helps startup knowledge and computer-based businesses with incentives, training and finding employees. During the past five years it has worked with 51 companies, which have created 200 jobs and about $15 million in payroll.
