The largest City in North Carolina, Charlotte is the second largest banking center in the US with ten Fortune 500 companies calling the city home. The city is also host to tech giants like LendingTree, an ecosystem of startup groups like Packard Place, Queen City Forward and RevTech Labs and rich academic institutions like UNC Charlotte College of Computing & Informatics.
