Microsoft has a huge campus here, which surprises a lot of our transferees! Ah, but the South has changed. Google is working on finalizing the plans for a new server farm outside of Charlotte, which isn't necessarily going to generate a lot of jobs right off the bat but should really encourage more technology companies to follow suit.

In biotechnology, our exciting development is the building of the North Carolina Research Campus in Kannapolis NC. David Murdoch is behind it (his idea plus his money) in conjunction with the University of North Carolina system. It's anticipated to become the largest center for biotechnology in the nation.

There are a good amount of high tech employment opps here in Charlotte. We have IBM here which is huge. Google, Apple and Facebook are nearby too.

Len, Charlotte has multiple high tech opportunities, depending on the nature of the technology. As the 2nd largest financial city in the US, there is abundant IT and financial technology opportunities with the banks and the companies that support them. Also, we are the birthplace of NASCAR and home to a majority of the racing teams. They employ countless engineers and offer technology opportunities that are both exciting and challenging.
