If We Can Land It: Amazon's Second Headquarters Could Bring 50K Jobs To The Triad

Your Ideas Wanted To Help Land Amazon

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- A second Amazon Headquarters could come to the Triad. The $5 billion, 50,000 job headquarters would mean big things for the Triad.

Economic developers from around the Triad and the Piedmont Triad Partnership are teaming up in hopes of landing the second Amazon Headquarters.

Developers are asking for your help in an effort to ‘think outside the box’ to land the new Amazon Headquarters.
The team of leaders said the Triad has all of the assets and conditions needed to fulfill Amazon’s needs but they need creative ideas on how to leverage those assets and conditions.

The Economic developers are launching TriadIsPrime to seek ideas from the community.

“We have a highly creative and entrepreneurial culture in the Triad and we need their creative ideas on this response.” said Bob Leak, President of Winston-Salem Business, Inc.

Brent Christensen, President & CEO of Greensboro Chamber of Commerce, said, “What could we do that is out of the norm and will get Amazon’s attention?  These are the ideas we seek!”

Economic developers will take ideas until the end of the day on October 10th.
