While the numbers show that we have a diverse economy, there are significant concentrations in a few key industries. In Wake County, the primary drivers are an impressive supply of well-educated and innovative people, and a strong collaborative environment between academia, government, and industry. Four industries that deserve special attention are Life Sciences, Advanced Manufacturing, IT & Technology, and Clean Tech & Smart Grid. Through our efforts as an economic development organization and the strong network of each industry, we believe we offer these industries a distinct competitive advantage over other communities.
