Tech Innovation Index Release + Briefing

How do North Carolina metros stack up? Where is our competition? What are our opportunities?

NC TECH released its inaugural North Carolina Tech Innovation Index in December 2021. This National Metro Comparison conducted by Ted Abernathy and his team at Economic Leadership, looks at the performance of the state’s metros against other top metros in the country. The methodology, developed with input from tech leaders, uses a list of metrics grouped into three subindexes: tech talent supply, tech talent demand, and innovation. The data used to compare metro tech performance will be released annually and will be used to assess our competitive position year after year.

NC TECH and Economic Leadership will release the 2023 Tech Innovation Index on October 19, and host a live briefing on the highlights with Abernathy. There will also be time for questions. Registration is open to members and non-members. Click below to register.


This event is open to both members and non-members of NC TECH, but registration is required.
