New leader coming to The Harbor Entrepreneur Center

The Harbor Entrepreneur Center, a nonprofit focused on helping entrepreneurs through accelerator programs and coworking spaces, will have a new executive director on June 1.

Daniel Stern, the former executive director of the Jewish Community Center and previous major gifts officer for the Lowcountry Food Bank, will assume the helm. John Osborne, the Harbor’s co-founder and current executive director, said recently he plans to step down to work fulltime at Good Growth Capital, a Charleston-based venture capital fund, and with Charleston Angel Partners, an area investment group. “The Harbor is heading into a phase of rapid growth and we are excited to have Daniel on board to lead our nonprofit,” said Osborne, who will sit on the board.

SCbio’s Charleston-area office is graciously hosted at The Harbor Entrepreneur Center by the non-profit organization.
