Public-private partnership is key to Upstate region’s success

What has driven $11 billion in capital investment and creation of 27,415 new jobs in South Carolina’s Upstate from 2019-2023? A location in the heart of the booming Charlanta megaregion. A business-friendly environment. And a collaborative, “can-do” spirit fueled by public-private collaboration. All for the benefit of future generations.

#TeamUpstate is about what the 10-county Upstate region can achieve by working beyond community borders and across industry lines, brought together by the Upstate SC Alliance. As a public-private regional economic development organization, we believe people and relationships are key to making our economy prosper. We work as a team with Upstate economic development offices, the South Carolina Department of Commerce, and 225+ investor companies to move business forward in the Upstate.
