Concentric Congratulates Jim Thompson and the Compliance+ Team Compliance+ selected as part of CoHort 3 the Harbor Accelerator Program

Charleston, SC, January 29, 2015 — Concentric announced today that one of its affiliate start-up companies, Compliance+, has been selected by the Harbor Entrepreneur Center as one of eight companies for its CoHort 3 business accelerator program. Jim Thompson, the owner of both Concentric and Compliance+ was quoted by saying “I’m so pumped for this incredible opportunity”. CoHort 3 has officially already begun and Compliance+ is already hard at work.

As to why Jim and Concentric are excited about this opportunity for Compliance+, Jim says “Concentric was interested in developing a scalable digital product that would improve our consulting and training services. The majority of our team members are certified auditors, so it just made sense to create a mobile auditing checklist. With the wave of changes to ISO 9001 later this year, we know that this standard is where we want to be. With over 1.2 million companies certified to this quality standard globally, Compliance+ is a perfect fit for our initial focus.”
