What is EngenuitySC?
At EngenuitySC, we do economic development a little differently...
Headquartered in Columbia, EngenuitySC is public/private development partnership that uses innovation and imagination to grow the knowledge economy in the Midlands of South Carolina. Everything we do at EngenuitySC is focused on creating an environment that:
- Values innovative ideas and creations
- Finds, keeps, and recruits first class talent for our workforce
- Harnesses the entrepreneurial spirit and provides growth opportunities for startups
- Emboldens Columbia’s competitive advantage over comparable regions
What is our expertise?
Simply put, we are experts in collaboration, planning, and execution, and those are the tools we use to grow the knowledge economy. We understand that it takes participation from dynamic partners representing every corner of our region. Our job is to bring industry, community, government, research, and higher education together, and challenge them to make our Midlands better for everyone.
How do we impact the community?
At EngenuitySC, we’ve prioritized two important pathways for growing and sustaining the knowledge economy:
- Developing a vibrant culture
- Establishing innovative industry clusters
We believe in offering original and inspired programming that appeals to audiences of all shapes and sizes. Whether it’s providing a casual environment for public and science to interact, or kicking up the heat at our high-energy conference on professional passions and home grown innovations, we constantly seek ways to reach different audiences and make knowledge exciting.
Industries cluster in regions because they share strengths that are organic and unique to the area. Our job is to recognize those clustered industries, organize them around a mission, capitalize on our own regional strengths, overcome obstacles, and help everyone grow in the process. We think that growing industry clusters as part of the knowledge economy will mean more jobs, higher wages, and stronger communities.
