FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CHARLOTTE, NC — Capital Analytics’ in-depth research into the Charlotte market is an essential tool for economic development in a time of uncertainty. Invest: Charlotte, one of an annual series of business reports from the media and information company, offers comprehensive business intelligence highlighting Charlotte as a place to do business. Known for its affordability, highly educated workforce, and reputation as a major banking hub, the Queen City is poised to continue its growth and economic diversification even through current coronavirus-related challenges and uncertainty. This first edition of Invest: Charlotte dives deep into the top economic sectors in the Charlotte Metro Area, including real estate, construction, utilities and infrastructure, transportation and aviation, banking and finance, legal, healthcare, education, and arts, culture and tourism. 

The business report features exclusive insights from industry leaders, sector insiders, elected officials and heads of important institutions, brought together for the first time in a comprehensive release. It analyzes the leading challenges facing the market and uncovers emerging opportunities for investors, entrepreneurs and innovators.

“Charlotte was an important expansion for us as it is the nation’s second-largest banking city and a key driver of economic growth in the Southeast. The Queen City is experiencing positive economic activity as national and international companies choose Charlotte as a place to grow or relocate their operations. Our Charlotte expansion showcases how metro areas are more than just cities, but rather a diverse ecosystem made up of many companies, locations and environments. Despite the challenges put upon us by COVID-19, Capital Analytics remains steadfast in our purpose: to deliver in-depth business intelligence through its print and digital platforms. Now more than ever, information is not only necessary, it is vital,” said Abby Melone, President and CEO of Capital Analytics. 

Over seven months, the Capital Analytics team conducted extensive research and interviewed over 200 high-profile industry leaders, including Charlotte Mayor Vi Lyles, City Manager Marcus Jones,  Charlotte Regional Business Alliance President Janet LaBar, Bank of America Charlotte Market Leader Charles Bowman, and President and CEO of Atrium Health Eugene Woods. Through intensive research, the Capital Analytics team identified significant business insights that will serve as important knowledge benchmarks for investors, entrepreneurs and innovators. The publication is the first and most comprehensive report on Charlotte’s vibrant business climate, as seen through the eyes of those at the forefront of their sectors. Additionally, Invest: Charlotte features a dedicated Gaston County chapter further highlighting the business opportunities in the region. 

“Over the course of our seven-month research period, we were given the ability to get an insider view into Charlotte’s vibrant and diverse economy and discover what is driving the population and business growth in the Queen City. We found that Charlotte’s forward-thinking attitude, key investments in infrastructure and development, and collaborative business culture has transformed Charlotte into a resilient city ready to weather current economic challenges, while continuing its economic growth and social prosperity,”  said Max Crampton-Thomas, Regional Editor of Capital Analytics.
