The Carolina Core is a regional economic development initiative for central North Carolina highlighting the cumulative impact of the region’s globally competitive economic development assets to attract new jobs, business expansions and relocations.

The Carolina Core stretches between Winston-Salem, Greensboro, High Point and Fayetteville at the heart of North Carolina, which is consistently ranked as one of the best states to do business with low costs and competitive incentives. Anchored by four new megasites of 7,200 acres of certified land, research parks and mixed-use developments, the corridor draws from a deep pool of manufacturing, engineering and tech talent fueled by top-notch colleges and universities. Both Fortune 500 companies and startups alike call the region home.

Economic momentum in the Carolina Core is building with more than 13,000 new jobs announced since 2018.
