HiveStorm: Amazon HQ2 Community Summit

October 11, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 9:30 am

“Amazon selects Charlotte, NC for its new HQ2, bringing 50,000 jobs and $5 billion investment to the Queen City.”

Sound like a crazy headline? We don’t think so. But we need your help. Join us next Wednesday morning on October 11th for the single community wide event meant to answer one question: What intangible ‘It’ factor does Charlotte have that Amazon needs to know about?

Participants will be assigned to working groups of ten to determine one topic that is uniquely Charlotte, and deliver data points to be included in the final proposal sent to Amazon.

Charlotte’s business and civic leaders spearheading the charge on the Amazon HQ2 proposal will attend to share a status update with the community and answer questions.


Who: Leaders and members of the broader Charlotte community interested in seeing Amazon’s HQ2 come to Charlotte

What: Participants will be divided into working groups of ten individuals each. Each working group will determine one uniquely Charlotte intangible they think should be included in the final proposal to Amazon before leaving the summit. By Friday, October 13th, each group will work as a team in the digital community to submit a final 1 slide document with an executive summary and supporting data points to be included in the Amazon HQ2 proposal.
