Overview

People keep coming to the Charlotte region. 102 people a day, in fact. Why do they come to Charlotte? They come for jobs in a healthy and growing economy with thriving health care, finance and professional services sectors, and ranked the No. 1 fastest-growing tech talent market two years running. They come to start and grow businesses in a state with the lowest corporate tax rate on the East Coast and a region with an educated, talented and innovative workforce, regularly ranked in the top three best places to start a business. They come for lower cost of living and affordable real estate in neighborhoods suitable for any lifestyle – from vibrant urban centers to suburban cul-de-sacs to quaint small towns and rural areas. And 226 days of sunshine a year doesn’t hurt either. Need more proof? Browse our signature publication, Charlotte: A Global Hub for Business, above or visit our comprehensive CLT Data page.
