Listen here as we’re joined by Charlotte City Councilman Tariq Bokhari to talk about a big federal project he’s hoping to bring to Charlotte.

Councilman Bokhari talks about how he got started in the financial technology sector + why he thinks it is important for that type of technology to continue to develop in Charlotte.

Bokhari explains the bid he made to the federal government for Charlotte to become one of the relatively few cities in America that is one of the “hubs,” that are coming + addresses the issue of artificial intelligence and what he and his team have learned about it so far.

Finally Bokhari explains the direct and indirect impacts that the process of becoming this hub will have on Charlotte and the surrounding area + what the time frame for the process is like should Charlotte win one of the few bids to become a new financial technology hub.
