WE ADVANCE SOUTH CAROLINA
The South Carolina Council on Competitiveness – The Council – is a nonpartisan, business-led, nonprofit organization that drives South Carolina’s long-term economic growth by managing the state’s industry clusters and providing the research, network, and resources that industry clusters require to thrive.
The Council’s work is accomplished in 3 primary ways:
We lead research studies that empower policymakers and industries to grow and sustain their competitiveness in the state and beyond.
CLUSTERS + INITIATIVES
We directly & indirectly manage clusters and initiatives across the state and continue to vet, support, incubate, and steward emerging clusters.
EDUCATION + WORKFORCE
We support statewide education initiatives that work to optimize existing resources, expertise, and ideas to develop world-class talent in SC.
