SafeShowings, a mobile app created to deter crimes committed against real estate professionals and homeowners, is one of seven area businesses selected to participate in The Harbor Entrepreneur Center’s Accelerator Program in Cohort 11. The Harbor Accelerator is a 14-week business accelerator program designed to support growth of scalable businesses in the Charleston region. Each participating startup is provided resources and support to grow rapidly, test the market quickly, and become viable.

The SafeShowings app is the tool to facilitate this mission.” Read more on Lowcountry BizSC.
