The event will summarize how participants can maximize the impact of Opportunity Zones, which help stimulate economic growth in South Carolina. Several business leaders, community stakeholders, and industry experts will be speaking at the event.

“I am honored to have been invited to speak at the SC Opportunity Zone Summit this fall, and I look forward to discussing the importance of this initiative with guests from across the state,” U.S. Senator Tim Scott said in the press release. “Opportunity Zones are fundamental for the economic growth and prosperity of South Carolina. I applaud the work the SC Opportunity Fund is doing to invest in the infrastructure of our communities.”

The SC Opportunity Fund was founded in 2018 with the intent to invest in communities and real estate in South Carolina in the hopes of supporting economic growth. To learn more, visit SC Opportunity Zones’ website.
