charleston innovation

Innovation is driven by individuals. Organizations and communities support these innovators by providing them with the resources to develop actionable research and products that improve our lives. The increasingly successful interaction between the developing network of innovators and the entities that support them in Charleston is generating wealth for our community.

The innovation economy in communities like Silicon Valley, Austin, Texas and the Research Triangle Park in Raleigh evolved over decades. With an average growth rate of 300% between 1998 and 2002 for highly skilled degreed professionals in the Charleston region, as compared with the national average of 26%, Charleston's innovation economy is well on its way.

Here is a sample of diverse organizations responsible for driving Charleston's innovation economy:

Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC)
SPAWAR 
Foundation for Research Development at MUSC
Clemson University
US Department of Agriculture Research Service
University of South Carolina
Hollings Marine Lab
