A local company and the College of Charleston are holding a pair of related events this week, both focusing on women entrepreneurs.
Mount Pleasant-based Think Ideally, which offers support services for small business owners, will conduct the “Female Innovator Games” March 17 at the college’s Sottile Theatre at 44 George St. The competition will involves women-led, co-ed teams of entrepreneurs and students that will create women-led businesses. Participants will be vying for cash prizes, as well as potential seed funding, business incubation serices and an invitation to the regional and national games. A pitch day follows on March 18.
