Technology Companies in South Carolina

Comments Off on Technology Companies in South Carolina | By

Rock Hill, Myrtle Beach, Greenville, Charleston, and Columbia are all great, unique towns – some burgeoning, each ever-evolving, and all desirous of technology companies to form or locate in their walkable urban districts.

In these towns, you find a high standard of living with a low cost. They have great schools, lots of history, and each a unique bohemianism and flavor – as well as unique assets in proximity that help define a town’s character.

  • Greenville has the river and nearby mountains and lakes
  • Rock Hill has lakes, the river, and Charlotte
  • Charleston is a port and has been for a long time
  • Myrtle Beach has the beach, one like no other

The State of South Carolina has a certain charm, and this charm is unique in each of its municipalities.

We also have lots of colleges:

  • The University of South Carolina
  • College of Charleston
  • Winthrop University
  • South Carolina State University
  • Wofford College
  • Clemson University
  • and many more

I believe our state could do more in facilitating economic growth in the technology sector. And I believe that we could do a lot more in the area of economic development. But when I say this, I don’t mean that we should spend more money. Instead, I mean we should restructure resources and re-focus our energies (which I see happening). I believe we could spend less and achieve more. This is not a criticism of those currently doing this work in these places. Instead, it is my attempt to add value to an evolving process. I see progress happening across the state. I look forward.
