Grow Camp Interview with David Beitz, Co-Founder and Partner of Planned Grocery

About GrowCo's Entrepreneurship Mission:

Of, by, and for founders -- GrowCo is a collaborative partnership focused on sparking an explosion of entrepreneurship activity in Columbia, SC. GrowCo provides the community, mentorship programs, visibility, access to talent, and access to venture capital that high-impact, high-growth companies need to thrive and change the world.

What makes us unique?

One of our most unique elements is that our mentorship programs are run by and for growth-stage founders. Our founders have built successful companies, founded and led the region’s most successful entrepreneurship programs like 1 Million Cups Columbia, secured more than $5 million in public and private capital for tech-based economic development, and have the depth of knowledge of experience to launch, execute and sustain economic development projects.
