Compliments of CRDA and Investment Monitor
Aligned by a shared vision for a healthier world, a united life sciences sector is a powerful thing. In the Charleston, South Carolina, market, strong synergies between new and established businesses, academic institutions and state-led initiatives provide prime opportunities for scientific innovation and business success. A growing cluster of life science companies prove testament to the power of the region’s networks.
When considering possible locations for a new office, laboratory or manufacturing site, life science businesses will have a long checklist. This includes a provision of talent, access to markets, ease of transport and connectivity, quality of life and support from local government. When these elements come together an additional benefit is created: a thriving scientific ecosystem that generates a virtuous circle of advantages for businesses and their employees.
The Charleston region’s ecosystem helps companies solve business challenges and mitigate risks. As a result, an increasing number of biotech and medtech manufacturers, research laboratories and service companies are calling the area home, giving birth to a burgeoning life sciences community and all the network effects that come with it. For companies seeking to enter or expand in the US, the professional economic development organization, Charleston Regional Development Alliance, exists to guide you through the process. The Alliance provides multiple services at no cost to the company.
