Rethink businessThe Columbia you see today has taken on new life from the sleepy little city you might have heard about in the past. Want to know why we’re called “the new Southern hotspot”? We’ve experienced significant growth and revitalization over the last couple of years – and we’re bursting with pride over the city we have become. Located in the heart of South Carolina, Columbia has developed into a thriving hub – for talent, business, for talent and recreation. Columbia’s a modern, hard-working city and we’re clearly focused on growing business.
