Charlotte Area Technology Collaborative (CATC) brings together businesses, education, government and organizations to promote and grow the development of a diverse and skilled technology pipeline. The Collaborative provides learning and growth opportunities for future and current technology professionals, promoting innovation and entrepreneurism, advancing the technology profession and fostering economic development.
The Collaborative is Charlotte’s hub for the technology community and a clearinghouse for meaningful and needed technology education and activities in the Charlotte Region.
