WHAT IS A CLUSTER?

An SC Competes cluster is a geographic concentration of related companies, organizations, and institutions in a particular field or industry that can collectively raise the industry’s presence, productivity, and economic impact.

Importance of Clustering to South Carolina’s Economy

Clusters allow companies to be more innovative and productive by providing access to a shared pool of specialized resources without having to look outside of the region. These resources include: 

TALENT

FINANCING

RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT

 

SUPPLIERS

INDUSTRY KNOWLEDGE

The existence of established industry clusters in place add value to the state’s economy by serving as a resource to recruit, expand, and create new opportunities for new and existing businesses. As current businesses expand and new companies move to South Carolina, the state’s network of clusters can be key in determining long-term success.
