Innovation Center set to open downtown

Aug 17, 2010 10:14:00 PM - thestate.com

USC and the S.C. Research Authority on Thursday will officially open their $6.6 million high-tech business incubator in downtown Columbia.

The USC/SCRA Innovation Center, as it is called, is located in the 66,000-square-foot former warehouse building at 1000 Catawba St., across Assembly Street from USC’s Swearingen Engineering Center. The building was notable for the “Cockaboose” railroad car that had been for sale in front of the building.

The center has room to house 10 to 15 high-tech companies that emerge from research at USC.

“This center will be a place where innovation, entrepreneurship and job creation will come together to improve our region and our state,” USC President Harris Pastides said. “It will serve the aspirations of Richland and Lexington counties, of course, but its impact can also extend far beyond our region.”
