We play well together. So everyone gets better toys.

You could say healthy collaboration has been in our DNA forever. Our Triple Helix model for business development, though, goes back a mere 50 years. That's when leaders of the region's major research universities, businesses and government came together to create the Research Triangle Park.

The seeds of regional collaboration have grown into a dense network of researchers who continuously innovate, entrepreneurs and investors who turn discoveries into products and companies, and governments that structure intellectual property, regulatory and tax systems to enable new companies and industries to thrive.

A tightly linked, integrated and collaborative economic development community provides the connective tissue that keeps business, government and academic resources aligned and focused on business success.

Triple helix is in our DNA. It's who we are. It's why we're recognized globally for regional collaboration. The International Economic Development Council even selected us for its first-ever Award for Excellence in Regionalism and Cross-border Collaboration.

Playing together isn't just more fun, it's better business. Collaboration connects players, and that leads to more creativity and more innovation.
