WHO IS CHARLESTON REGIONAL DEVELOPMENT ALLIANCE?

DRIVING REGIONAL PROSPERITY

Charleston Regional Development Alliance (CRDA) has served as a catalyst for sustainable economic prosperity in Berkeley, Charleston and Dorchester counties since 1995. CRDA continues to deliver impactful results through convening and collaborating with the most influential business, government and academic leaders in our community to attract the world’s best companies and talent.

Our current economic development strategy was finalized in early 2022 and is now serving as a framework for CRDA’s work plan. The recommendations specifically focus on our region’s economic cluster and innovation ecosystems. Innovation advancement, from process improvement to disruptive technology, will be embedded throughout CRDA’s regional economic development activities over the next five years.

“CRDA and leaders in the Charleston region have made a strategic investment for equitable prosperity through constant emphasis on innovation, talent and sustainability. It will be an exciting year as this new strategy is executed, and we continue to celebrate impactful economic development wins that provide meaningful employment opportunities for our residents.”

FY 2021-2022 ACCOLADES FOR OUR STATE & REGION

One Region Roadmap is an economic recovery and resiliency plan for the 3-County Charleston region. It is guided by input from community leaders and local residents, and the Roadmap’s ultimate success will lie in its ability to provide positive and meaningful impacts on people’s lives.

This effort is made possible through a U.S. Economic Development Administration grant secured by the Berkeley-Charleston-Dorchester Council of Governments, with additional support from partner agencies. The plan was developed by CRDA, the BCD Council of Governments, and the Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce, along with input and support from partner agencies.

ECONOMIC CLUSTER & INNOVATION STRATEGY

CRDA leveraged this more comprehensive effort to develop a sub-strategy specifically focused on our region’s economic cluster and innovative ecosystems. The plan is designed to lay the groundwork for the next evolution of Charleston’s economy by bolstering innovation throughout the region.

PRIORITY AREAS

EXPAND our global marketing & business attraction efforts

INTENSIFY our talent attraction efforts

FOSTER innovation within and across our region’s industry clusters

INCREASE our focus on resiliency and sustainability, which are crucial to attracting global companies

Our region competes with much larger markets for competitive investments, and our marketing and business development must be world-class.

CULTIVATE TALENT

Access to skilled talent is a top consideration for nearly every business deciding between investment locations.

According to the U.S. Chamber, innovation fuels 50-60% of economic growth in high-performing regions.

Did You Know?

PTB is an initiative of the Naval Information Warfare Systems Command (NIWC) Atlantic with a focus on cybersecurity, data science and communications.

Resiliency & sustainability are now key investment considerations, especially for European & multinational corporations.

Did You Know?

Redwood Materials, a producer of battery components for electric vehicles, is establishing its Southeast operations in our region. The company will invest $3.5 billion into the region and create 1,500 new jobs.
