Raleigh Chamber and Wake County Economic Development

The Competitive Edge program is a public private partnership of the Greater Raleigh Chamber of Commerce, Wake County, and the City of Raleigh.  NCDS has managed five successful campaigns since the program’s inception in 1995.  During that time, it has helped create over 170,000 jobs, helped recruit the NHL’s Carolina Hurricanes, and successfully advocated for the passage of four school bonds totaling $3 billion.  Recently, it has established a best practice talent attraction initiative called Work in the Triangle.

“Birmingham Landmarks, Inc. certainly made the right decision in selecting NCDS to raise the $7 million needed to fully restore our sadly dilapidated and abandoned former vaudeville theatre in downtown Birmingham.  Your firm provided the wisdom and experience to position the project as worthy of support, then structured a winning campaign that was creative, energizing, and relentless in pursuit of the goal.  We were especially appreciative of your flexibility relative to our early cash flow issues, and even more so in the selection of the assigned NCDS Project Executive.  Because of the success and momentum of your phase of this exceptional campaign, the Lyric staff was able to continue seeking commitments utilizing tax credits, and the total raised now exceeds $11.8 million.  Thanks to NCDS, Birmingham can boast of having one of the most spectacularly restored performing arts theaters in America.”
