It’s that time of year again: 80 degree weather, pollen-covered cars, Food & Wine Festival, no-see-ums, Fashion Week… Spring is officially here in Charleston!
With the longer days and warm weather comes event season, which means opportunities to get out there, network with the community, and drop some knowledge. From the Entrepreneur Ecosystem Happy Hour to DIG South, the next couple of months are loaded with can’t miss events for anyone in the high tech, startup, and creative worlds here in the Holy City.
Pay It Forward with Community Involvement
Here at Catch, one of our core values is “Give Back,” which is something we believe in both professionally and personally. We live a culture of learning, coaching, and mentoring not just at our own company, but whenever we get a chance to help other businesses be successful.
Gary Vaynerchuk has a great quote about giving back and sharing what you know: “Give value, give value, give value, then ask for business.” We couldn’t agree more.
Spring Tour Dates
We always love seeing friendly faces in the crowd, be sure to come say hi if you’re out and about – we’ll likely be there. Here are a few events where you can find us on stage:
