“The progressive nature of our Chamber led us to select Chapel Hill as the place to locate our company over Durham; Austin, Texas; and Portland, Oregon; all of which could be considered more obvious choices for a software development company. When we out grew our office space here in town, the Chamber went to the mat to keep us in Chapel Hill, including speaking on our behalf at Town Council meetings. We are huge fans of the Chamber!”
