Charlotte Seed of South

Seed the South is the only event in Charlotte highlighting early stage startups through a pitch competition and investor symposium. This two-day event provides a unique opportunity to meet the leading investors in the Carolinas and see the businesses of the future.

The mixture of start-ups, investors, established technology firms and corporations interested in tech at this year’s program leaves so much room for excitement for Charlotte’s long-term tech growth. Charlotte has finally got to a point where government, investors, and now corporations are focused on growing the startup ecosystem. That was the main takeaway from this year’s Seed the South event, sponsored by Cushman & Wakefield.

Established tech companies such as Ekos Brewmaster, 2U Laundry, Rabbu and Skipper all gave great advice to their peers in the start-up community, such as to be persistent and utilize peer networks. Additionally, all of Charlotte’s large banks including Truist, Bank of America and Wells Fargo were in attendance participating in discussion.

According to Cushman & Wakefield’s Tech Cities 2.0 report, which featured the 25 top “Tech Cities,” Charlotte ranked the No. 5 city for tech employment growth from 2010 to 2017.

Overall, the pitches were incredible, and Charlotte has a lot to look forward to based on the early stage companies in attendance.
