CHARLESTON STARTUP AND STEM
The Charleston Startup and STEM Foundation (CSSF) will provide support to high-impact programs that offer training and support of the Charleston, SC and surrounding Community related to entrepreneurship and STEM. As the entrepreneurship community recognizes the need for greater inclusivity, CSFF will lay the groundwork for a new generation of diverse entrepreneurs.
While our primary focus is on the needs of the Charleston community by directly supporting local organizations and programs, we recognize that those needs are sometimes best served through national or global efforts. Accordingly, when circumstances dictate, we may provide support to organizations and initiatives whose impact is not confined solely to the local community.
