The Charleston Regional Development Alliance is a professional economic development organization representing Berkeley, Charleston and Dorchester counties in South Carolina.

With a large and growing network of business, academic and governmental partners, we directly assist companies with competitive location or expansion projects by connecting them with the right people, the appropriate resources and the most meaningful and relevant information.


We also promote this region’s business, academic and lifestyle strengths worldwide to attract the world’s best companies, entrepreneurs and professional talent. Ultimately, our goal is to strengthen regional employment, build our base of high-value industries, and significantly improve the economic future for all who live and work in the greater Charleston area.


The CRDA is organized as a public/private, not-for-profit corporation supported and led by the region’s most influential business leaders, three county governments, largest municipalities, and top academic institutions. In addition to these important economic development partners, we collaborate closely with other entities throughout the Charleston area to ensure a globally competitive, sustainable regional economy.
