The Research Triangle is often referred to as “The Triangle.” It is a region in the Piedmont of North Carolina. The Research Triangle Regional Partnership (RTRP) began in 1990 and was created by community leaders from Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill. They all decided to market their communities together.
The leaders knew that in order to strengthen their individual community initiatives that they would need to take a regional approach to marketing. The RDA was funded by the chambers of commerce in Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill and the Research Triangle Foundation.
The Research Triangle provides many services to help companies grow and expand in the region. A few examples are Leading Regional Strategy. This allows coordinating economic development planning for the 13-county Research Triangle Region, promoting regional collaboration, supporting regional improvement and supporting local economic development agencies.
