Ag Tech Professional Forum

Economic Development Insights for Ag Tech in North Carolina

Join friends and colleagues from our region and share what’s happening in North Carolina’s ag tech industry. The Ag Tech Professional Forum is a series held throughout the year providing the opportunity to learn about N.C.’s diverse agricultural resources, while also offering a setting for networking and engagement outside of our normal workspaces. See the agenda below for the upcoming Forum topic and details.

Agenda

The ag tech industry in North Carolina has seen a lot of changes over the past year including mergers, acquisitions, impacts from academic initiatives and much more. Join us to learn more as we release the North Carolina Ag Tech Economic Growth July 2019 Report followed by a panel of key economic development stakeholders for our state, as they discuss what makes NC a national ag tech hub and how we can make it even more successful going forward.
