In January, Amazon announced its top 20 picks for its second North American headquarters. Amazon received 238 proposals from cities and towns across the U.S., Canada, and Mexico before they reviewed and chose its top 20 contending cities. Unlike some expansions, Amazon’s HQ2 will be an actual headquarters, not a satellite hub, and Amazon is planning to invest $5 billion and potentially create 50,000 jobs.
The Triangle is a top 20 contender and we want YOU to weigh in.
