Catalyst Center

Entrepreneurs are those who identify a need – any need – and fill it via creation of a business or product.

The Catalyst Center, located on the second floor of the Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce, is a space where aspiring and existing entrepreneurs can connect, receive information, identify resources, meet with mentors and take advantage of programs designed for their business start-up and growth.
