The chamber's economic development recruiters have a high tech tool to target 25 companies potentially ripe for a move. This week, they sent CEOs of strategically selected businesses Kindles equipped with a high definition video of Charlotte and a photographic slideshow.
"We felt like now was the perfect time to launch this campaign with Charlotte fresh on many people's minds following the Democratic National Convention," said Jeff Edge, svp economic development.
