Innovation starts right here in Anderson County, it is part of our DNA. Innovate Anderson offers a unique solution to assisting in bringing jobs and investment into Anderson County. Our organization’s flexibility and initiative have contributed to our ability to address community needs with special projects over the course of our existence. From product development to marketing support, Innovate Anderson is ready to bring resources to the table for our community. Our economic future depends on it. In a business world where competition is fierce, innovative approaches to how we attract new business and grow our already vibrant industry base are paramount.


At Innovate Anderson, innovation is not just in our name- it’s how we do business. Our non-profit public/private community development organization works tirelessly to tell the story of Anderson County in the global marketplace. The Clemson University Advanced Materials Center is home to cutting edge research and offers a tie between technology development and commercialization of that research. From supercomputing to molecular manipulation, Innovate Anderson is there.


We also put that same energy into bringing top tier events and entertainment here- from sports and conventions to nationally recognized festivals through the Anderson Convention & Visitors Bureau. We can have you hot air ballooning to spending time along one of our many lakes.
