Article on Business In Savannah by Julia Ritchey.
A cross section of Savannah showed up last night for a sneak peek at The Creative Coast’s latest endeavor: a business incubator dubbed Creators’ Foundry.
From budding entrepreneurs to established architects, flacks and city staff, guests sipped beers and snacked while strolling through the old 16,000-square-foot industrial warehouse, formerly home to SCAD’s Boundary Hall and its now-defunct sculpture minor.
The Creative Coast, headed by Executive Director Bea Wray, wants the Foundry to provide a launch pad for budding entrepreneurs and startups as well space for cultural and civic events.
A blueprint designed by Gunn Meyerhoff Shay Architects shows the vision for the interior, roughly divided into six different areas.
The LAUNCHpad at the back of the building is envisioned as space for independent companies who are looking for workspace to grow their business. The GEEKpond is described as a flexible space open to community events and workshops, and the BIZlab is an area for more intensive coaching and mentoring for select high growth organizations.
