Myrtle Beach business incubator celebrates milestone

MYRTLE BEACH (WMBF) - Ray Antonino and his business partner have found a way to grow their business, save time and outsmart the competition thanks to CoWork MYR.

"We are seeing our idea come to life, and that's priceless," says Antonino, the COO of ADA Approved.

CoWork MYR held a ribbon cutting Thursday to celebrate ADA Approved. They are the first business to be incubated. CoWork MYR helped the company design a tablet application that streamlines what they do.

ADA Approved goes into businesses and makes sure they are ADA compliant with federal regulations. Its a process Antonino says can take up to forty hours for one job. Antonino and his business partner had an idea to streamline the process, but they weren't technically savvy so they went to CoWork MYR.

"We are just fortunate to have found the right people here locally that are well qualified that bought into the vision and as a result we are seeing our idea come to life," says Ray Antonino the Chief Operating Officer of ADA Approved.

The incubator located at 601 21st Avenue North in Myrtle Beach helps people turn their business ideas into 21st century realities by bringing people with different skill sets together under one roof.

They have around 25 members including graphic design artists, web developers, encoders and more. Some members are those who just come in with an idea and need help to get it off the ground.
