WILMINGTON, N.C. — The Council for Entrepreneurial Development has opened a new office in Wilmington as part of its effort to further support the coastal market.

The CED, which merged with the Coastal Entrepreneurial Council last year, has secured space in a technology incubator operated by SpecialtySoft in downtown Wilmington. SpecialitySoft is a CED member.

The CED and SpecialtySoft will host an open house on Nov. 14 as part of the CED’s networking event known as the “Watering Hole.”

Wilmington also is the site for a two-day CED conference on Dec. 4-5.
