The park was founded, in part, to entice the graduates of area's top notch universities to stay in the area. Another goal was to offer employers a place to conduct research and develop the discoveries they made close to the area’s universities. With this in mind the Triangle has become well known for its research and development, education, entrepreneurship, and high quality of life.
