A Charleston-based consultancy that works to build startups is planning to expand its own West Ashley footprint and workforce.
Launchpeer will move from a 1,200-square-foot space on Markfield Drive to 4,000 square feet at 873 Orleans Road. The new space has an open floor plan, coworking space, a break room, two private offices and a conference room.
The company plans to add seven to 10 employees to its current staff of 23 in the coming months, the company said in a news release.
“The new space will enable us to hire new tech talent and meet the demand we’re seeing from our growing customer base,” Launchpeer co-founder and CEO Jake Hare said in the release.
The firm plans to use about 1,500 square feet in the new office to host weekly and monthly tech-related events, such as workshops, events, speakers and seminars.
Launchpeer works on software development, graphic design and marketing efforts for early stage companies. Since 2014, the company has worked with more than 150 startups in seven countries.
