Launched in 2015, the South Carolina I-77 Alliance is a nonprofit, public-private regional partnership. Our job is simple: tell the world about the unequalled business and manufacturing opportunities throughout a diverse four-county area known as the ‘I-77 Corridor’ that stretches from Columbia, SC to just south of Charlotte, NC.
Our function is not to manage projects – we leave that to the economic development experts in Chester, Fairfield, Richland and York Counties – but to help companies discover the countless advantages and benefits the I-77 Corridor has to offer. In other words, we create lead generation, marketing and branding for the area.
We provide value-added services and products to local developers, including strategic planning, workforce assessment, research services and data platforms. Plus, since our members represent the entire I-77 region, we are agile and proactive, as we all work in tandem to drive the region’s success.
