A nonprofit, public/private economic development organization, the Charlotte Regional Partnership leverages regional resources to market the 16-county Charlotte region. The Partnership’s business development activities position Charlotte USA for sustained, long-term growth, job creation and investment opportunities.

With 16 counties – 12 in North Carolina and four in South Carolina, Charlotte USA has a wealth of assets for the Charlotte Regional Partnership to market. The Partnership serves as a catalyst for government/business collaboration to market and promote Charlotte USA as a highly competitive, vibrant region with an increasingly attractive quality of life. In fact, our region is the case that proves the point that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Although each of the 16 counties has its own strength, each experiences greater economic success – and is more competitive – by working together than alone.

Throughout the year, our business development team hosts, visits and responds to site selection advisors and corporate decision makers throughout North and South America, Europe and Asia. The Partnership also spreads the word by working with national and international reporters on stories that position the region as a premier business destination. Articles have appeared in publications as diverse as The Wall Street Journal, Time, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung andBoston Globe.
