Message from Secretary Hitt: Positioning S.C. businesses for growth

quote"Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity." Those famous words of wisdom by Roman philosopher Seneca translate into how we do business today and illustrate the level of preparedness it takes to compete in the economic development arena.

Earlier this week, as part of S.C. Commerce's ongoing commitment to provide valuable business resources throughout the phases of development and growth, we launched a new Business Development website - SCBizDev.SCCommerce.com. The online platform helps connect companies - large and small, new and existing - with funding, local resources, buyers, data and analytics to guide smart and efficient business decisions. It provides convenient access to a wide range of information and is designed to be a "one stop" resource for the state's business community.

To maintain South Carolina's competitive edge, it is imperative that all businesses are able to utilize the myriad of available resources to be prepared, grow and, ultimately, succeed. SCBizDev.SCCommerce.com is the latest tool in our arsenal that connects with the needs of all businesses that call South Carolina home - now and in the future.
