Charleston’s technology sector is growing rapidly, producing some of the nation’s fastest growing companies, including Boomtown, Bibliolabs, Blue Acorn, Ceterus, Good Done Great and Phishlabs. It is growing so fast, in fact, that Fast Company has named Charleston the Silicon Valley of the East Coast, or Silicon Harbor.
