This year was a big one for so many startups across the Charlotte region. Through major capital raises, acquisitions, national television appearances and product launches, the Queen City’s entrepreneurial ecosystem has stayed busy.

Charlotte Inno has taken a look back at which companies we believe are poised to have a breakout year in 2022. Some may be more established and in a position for that big moment, while others may be fresh and new with upward momentum.
