Ten Counties. One Upstate. Stronger Together
Ten diverse counties make up the Upstate of South Carolina. We share successes and weaknesses, yet political and geographical boundaries often prevent us from working together to address the key systemic issues that impact our economic vitality and quality of life.
Collaboration and cooperation are essential for the Upstate to reach its true potential. That is why Ten at the Top was established—to join public, private and non-profit leaders together in conversation around issues that affect us all.
By 2030, the Upstate region is projected to have 1.6 million residents and one million jobs. With so much change ahead, it’s more important now than ever to embrace our heritage, protect our environment, grow our competitiveness, and cultivate our people. Ten at the Top provides opportunities for you to share a vision for the Upstate and help make it a reality.
