State of Technology

Executives from across sectors and functional roles will gather May 8 at our flagship tech conference for a day of engaging keynotes, interactive panel discussions, fast paced pitch competition from tech startups and an Exhibit Showcase. A pre-conference reception will be held the evening prior, on May 7.

Startup Showcase

NC TECH incorporates a STARTUP SHOWCASE by selecting 6 tech startup companies with innovative security technologies to present on stage. Selected companies are given a 5 minute timeslot to present to general attendance. Event attendees vote to select one startup to win a prize package consisting of cash and in-kind services. Startups will be announced in 2020.
