The Gould Business Incubator

A Great Place To Grow Your Business


The Pee Dee area has played a vital role in rebounding South Carolina’s economy. The creation of new businesses and jobs is a key component of that growth. The Gould Business Incubator was established as an extension of the Southeastern Institute of Manufacturing and Technology in 2012 to help ensure the success of new business ventures in the Florence-Darlington area.

The Incubator includes 7 modern, furnished office spaces and 17 multi-use bays. All spaces are expandable and many offer large, roll up doors and 480 volt, 3-phase power. Affordable rent for each space includes use of conference rooms, dining area, office services and free phone and internet service.

In addition to physical space, The Incubator hosts a number of learning and business support programs and links directly to the resources of the SIMT and Florence-Darlington Technical College.
