Goal: Growing jobs by creating economic opportunity and increasing economic competitiveness.

Mission: The PTP is a leadership organization of the Triad's private sector working to create jobs.

Vision: The Piedmont Triad Region can create high wage jobs by leveraging catalytic development platforms.

Stakeholder Perspective

PTP brings the Triad's private sector leadership to collaborations with local economic development agencies/organization as well as the NC General Assembly and Governor’s office to create, enable and promote job growth in the Triad.

Why Regional Action?

It’s simple: the more we work together, the stronger our regional economy becomes, which means it’s best to avoid disconnect when it comes to our goals for the future. That’s why, in working towards economic development in the Triad, PTP leverages assets and aims to influence the economy on a regional scale.
