In addition to Raleigh being the state capital of North Carolina, the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill Research Triangle is known nationally and internationally as among the top places in the U.S. to do business. Raleigh is not just a business center – it is one of the country’s strongest centers of technology, health care and education.

The Raleigh-Durham metro area is also home to Research Triangle Park, one of the largest research parks in the world and, with its founding in 1959, one of the first planned research communities in the country. RTP is home to over 200 companies employing 50,000 workers and 10,000 contractors, including the second-largest IBM operation in the world.

  • Raleigh: A Home Designed for Tech Leaders

    Cisco Systems, IBM, Lenovo, Cree, Red Hat, Glaxo-Smith-Kline, SAS Institute, QuintilesIMS, and many other leading tech companies call the Raleigh area home. The first five companies on that abbreviated list registered 875 utility patents among them out of 1,280 utility patents received locally in 2015.

    In addition established companies in Raleigh, high-tech startups flourish independently or in local incubators, like the American Underground, have nurtured hundreds of firms at locations in Raleigh and Durham.

    The young entrepreneurs, inventors and innovators who run, start and work for these companies are educated at local research universities, like N.C. State University in Raleigh, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Duke University in Durham, as well as at N.C. Central University in Durham, Campbell University, which houses its law school in downtown Raleigh, and others. Indeed many of today’s established companies and startups have their origins in labs and classrooms of NCSU, UNC-CH, NCCU, Duke and Campbell.

    N.C. State University in Raleigh, home to one of U.S. News’ Best Engineering Schools, is also home to one of two Patent and Trademark Resource Centers (PTRCs) in the state. It and the PTRC at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte are designated by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) to receive and house copies of patent and trademark materials, to make them freely available to the public, and to actively disseminate patent and trademark information.

    Businesses, professionals and students in the Raleigh area also reap the benefits of the North Carolina Technology Association (NCTA) not-for-profit association formed in 1993 to focus on advancing the state’s tech industry. The NCTA, through headquarters in Raleigh and a regional office in Charlotte, provides programs and publications, hosts gatherings, and provides visibility for 750+ member companies, organizations and institutions representing more than 150,000 North Carolina-based employees.
