The Charleston Regional Competitiveness Center website, built on Avalanche’s Headlight software platform, won this year’s C2ER Community and Economic Research Award for “Outstanding Achievement and Excellence in Data Collection/ Dissemination Efforts.” This interactive platform provides the Charleston community with economic data needed to make business, workforce and site selection decisions in an easy-to-use, visual format.

The C2ER awards program recognizes the contribution of research activities to the success of local, regional, or state/provincial economic development initiatives. The projects were judged on contributions to the economic development research field, innovation in approach, implementation or collaborative efforts, responsiveness to customer needs and benefits resulting from project implementation.
