Why Charlotte? We're glad you asked.

Because we work harder, dream bigger, and hustle relentlessly, but still believe in the power of “hello” and “how are you.” We move fast but take time. We see value in collaboration, opportunity in diversity. Because we know we're better together. Because we don't just think outside the box … we create our own. Then we create our own businesses. Our own industries. We accelerate, expand, remix, break apart, build back smarter.

Because you won't find another city better. Because you deserve a city that's got your back. Because our potential is infinite. And our future is yours for the making.
