The South Carolina Council on Competitiveness manages multiple industry clusters in South Carolina and provides support to many others across the state. Clusters are economic ecosystems of linked industries and other entities important to competition, like suppliers of components, machinery, and services.

The resulting inter-cluster business environment fosters innovation. Innovation, in turn, spurs new business ventures.
