#TeamUpstate

Because TOGETHER, we can achieve the extraordinary.

What has driven $7.8 billion in capital investment and creation of 26,853 new jobs in South Carolina’s Upstate from 2015-2019?

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.

#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.

Formed in 2000, the Alliance is a public/private regional economic development organization whose mission is to position the Upstate to excel in the global economy through strategic marketing, collaboration, and thought leadership. We work as a team with Upstate economic development offices, the South Carolina Department of Commerce, and 180+ investor companies to move business forward in the Upstate. Will you join us?
