Belgium-Based Spotit Plans Raleigh, North Carolina, U.S. Operations

Spotit, a Belgium-based company that offers cybersecurity technologies and services, will locate its first U.S. location at NC State’s Centennial Campus in Raleigh, North Carolina. The project is expected to create 100 jobs over the next five years.

The company aims to tap into NC State’s globally recognized expertise in cybersecurity, with plans to join the university’s Secure Computing Institute and the Computer Science Department’s ePartners Program.

"We can only grow if we find the right talent. That is crucial for us. Raleigh has a 15-minute drive to three of the leading universities of America. That's crazy, and that's why we chose Raleigh,” said Steven Vynckier, a founding partner of Spotit.

NC State’s Partnerships Office collaborated with the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina (EDPNC), Wake County Economic Development, Wake Technical Community College, Research Triangle Regional Partnership and the Raleigh Chamber of Commerce to support Spotit’s expansion.

“We are excited that Spotit will be joining the ever-growing roster of international businesses that call Wake County home,” said Michael Haley, executive director, Wake County Economic Development. “Our readily available talent pipeline, innovation ecosystem and quality of life make this area ideal for global companies of all sizes.”

Spotit collaborates with customers on innovative security & networking architectures that bring a big strategic advantage and insight.
