South Carolina’s new effort to lure small investments from overseas companies has pulled in its first target.
The Commerce Department said Friday that the British travel site Golfbreaks.com has opened an office in Mount Pleasant as part of the state’s young “Landing Pad” program. That initiative aims to draw foreign firms looking for a toehold in the U.S. market by helping ease the process.
Golfbreaks is the first company to go through Landing Pad, which helps newcomers from abroad make sense of regulations, search for real estate and find attorneys, accountants and staffing firms. It’s a bet that a modest investment now might lead to a more jobs for South Carolinians later.
