What We Do
Experience has taught us that thinking like a business can transform the way organizations
develop products, deliver services, innovate technologies and execute strategy.
To help spread internet access to students and residents statewide, the University
of South Carolina and Benedict College will open computer labs, complete with technology
courses, at eight sites across the Palmetto State.
The UofSC Office of Innovation, Partnerships, and Economic Engagement (OIPEE) was
critical in bringing these companies together to tap into UofSC research expertise
to create this game-changing technology.
The University of South Carolina pumps approximately $6.2 billion annually into the
state’s economy, according to a new study, representing a $700 million growth in annual
impact over four years.
