The Digital Corridor, a public-private partnership, was launched in 2001 as a part of the City of Charleston's overall economic development strategy to build a diverse, leading 21st century community. Our mission is to attract, nurture and promote Charleston's knowledge economy. This goal is accomplished through a combination of targeted initiatives and business incentives, while leveraging Charleston's renowned livability.

The CDC is focused on creating the business, education and social environment that is attractive to knowledge-based companies. Then, the CDC leverages its carefully nurtured relationships, program elements, legislative access, and contacts,  to assist companies with integrating them into community. This integration is accomplished through four pillars - COMMUNITY, TALENT, SPACES & CAPITAL.

The Charleston Digital Corridor is highly collaborative organization with advisors hailing from the Charleston tech community and beyond. This allows us to stay lean, relevant and highly responsive to the dynamic needs of our tech community. We believe in community sourced intelligence as the preferred way to operate.
