December Networking Luncheon
December 7, 2017 12:00 PM - December 7, 2017 1:30 PM (EST)


Innovation-based Economic Development Across North Carolina

Innovation can spark the creation of new companies and, ultimately, new industries. Economic developers should understand the requirements for innovation-based economic development and how these novel approaches can differ from traditional approaches for attracting and growing companies.

How are innovation, emerging technologies, and new production models impacting job creation and investment in both urban and rural areas of North Carolina? Join the experts in an overview of innovation-based economic development and how the state’s counties, towns and cities are embracing this approach.
