Charleston, SC
Stanfield Gray launched DIG SOUTH Tech Conference from his garage in Charleston on July 4, 2012. Funded by a Kickstarter campaign, Gray set out with a simple goal in mind: “Succeed in the South.” The strategy was clear: 1. Connect homegrown startups to leading global brands. 2. Deliver the content, contacts and capital opportunities entrepreneurs and executives from the South need to succeed in the digital age. Today, DIG SOUTH Tech Conference welcomes 2000+ attendees, 150+ speakers and 100+ investors annually to Charleston, produces the DIG C-Level Summit and DIG SOUTH Wild Pitch demo day event, and has hosted more than 1200 companies. Gray graduated from the University of South Carolina Honors College and University of Mississippi Southern Studies MA Program, and is a Liberty Fellow of the Aspen Global Leaders Network.
