Greater Charleston has become a recognized hotspot for business investment, with the area's major employers including Boeing, Google, Bosch, SPAWAR, Force Protection and Blackbaud. Thanks to the area's globally competitive business environment, Charleston attracts not only major multinationals but also innovative startups that contribute to the region's economic vigor and unprecedented business growth.
Charleston's success in attracting corporate investment is due to a number of factors including a pro-business tax and incentive structure, a highly skilled workforce, world-class infrastructure, and an attractive coastal location.
One key driver of the economy is international commerce, and with one of the world's most productive seaports, quick access to international air hubs in Washington D.C. and Atlanta, plus a state-of-the-art communications infrastructure, Charleston provides companies a seamless connection to world markets.
Another key factor is the workforce: Each year, thousands of new residents relocate to greater Charleston, bringing new ideas and diverse talents to this thriving community. Young singles, established professionals, growing families, college students, empty nesters—all are eager to enjoy the local lifestyle and build a career in Charleston.
