Take Part in the Growing Success Story

The I-77 region is poised for growth. Having access to the two major metropolitan areas of Columbia and Charlotte, our region is comprised of urban, suburban, and rural settings that can accommodate any plans for corporate expansion from office and corporate projects to manufacturing and distribution operations.

The South Carolina I-77 Alliance is a county-driven, non-profit economic development organization dedicated to positioning and marketing the five counties as a world-class business location to attract capital investment and high-quality jobs to the region.
We provide value-added services and products to the local developers within our five-county region, 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.
