Lowcountry Start-Up Accepted to Nashville Accelerator

South Carolina Business Review logo

The Nashville Entrepreneur Center and the Country Music Association (CMA) recently accepted a  Charleston, SC-based startup into their competitive 2018 Project Music Portfolio program, which is a year-round, entrepreneurship program designed to accelerate the success of music-oriented startups.  And of course, you want to know who that company is…

Mike Switzer interviews Cori Banyon, founder and CEO of AndMe.TV, a Harbor Entrepreneur Center company in Charleston, SC.

After almost 20 years, Mike Switzer retired from Wells Fargo Securities in 2001 as Senior Vice President/Investment Officer and Certified Portfolio Manager. In 1999, he and his wife, Maggie, purchased and operated for eight years the Baskin Robbins ice cream store on Forest Drive in Columbia. They grew the store from a bottom-tier operation in the Baskin Robbins franchise system to one in the top 5% nationwide within three years, tripling sales along the way. While operating the ice cream store, Mike and Maggie received patents for a portable ice cream sink and fold-down sneezeguard they invented and in 2002 started Magnolia Carts, an ice cream cart manufacturing company, which they sold in 2013.
