Columbia, South Carolina is a much different city than the one you visited or heard about years ago. Columbia is a “city on the move,” and people are excited about all the growth and development taking place here. With over $1.4B in investment in Columbia over the past five years, the word is out: our community is moving forward and great things are happening here.

We work with interested companies and provide access to information, resources, and services to help your business overcome barriers to growth. The CED office and our partners can assist your business strategic planning, analysis, workforce needs, expansion or relocation opportunities, entry to new markets or the creation of new partnerships.
