Creative & Technical Services

The Bridge Fund

The Bridge Fund is one such way in which SEDA is propelling business – and funding – in the region. Currently in development, The Bridge Fund is a regional innovative strategies grant (or seed fund) that will invest in approximately 30 high-growth potential startups in an eight-county region (Beaufort, Jasper and Hampton counties in neighboring South Carolina and Chatham, Bulloch, Bryan, Liberty and Effingham counties in Georgia). The name ‘The Bridge Fund’ is symbolic of the Savannah River that runs between these two geographic areas and how it will be used to bridge the funding gap for advancing early-stage, technology-driven businesses across state lines.

If you would like to invest in The Bridge Fund or be part of funding additional new opportunities, please contact SEDA Vice President of Innovation and Entrepreneurship Jen Bonnett.
