The Biden-Harris administration, through the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Economic Development Administration (EDA), has announced the designation of 31 Tech Hubs in regions across the country, including one in South Carolina.
This is the first phase of the new Tech Hubs program, which is an economic development initiative designed to drive regional innovation and job creation by strengthening a region’s capacity to manufacture, commercialize, and deploy technology that will advance American competitiveness, a news release stated. The program invests directly in burgeoning, high-potential U.S. regions and aims to transform them into globally competitive innovation centers.
The SC Nexus for Advanced Resilient Energy, spearheaded by the South Carolina Department of Commerce, was named a tech hub designee.
