GENERAL. North Carolina is home to world-renowned universities, research and development institutes and medical practices leading the way for the biotechnology, pharmaceutical and life sciences industries. According to the Economic Development Partnership for North Carolina, in 10 years, the State has invested over a billion dollars in university research and facilities, workforce training, incentives and infrastructure.
“North Carolina is one of the few states where entrepreneurs can take an idea conceived in the lab, create a product and refine it, produce and test it through the clinical trial phases and then manufacture and distribute it to global markets, all from one place,” said the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina.
From the North Carolina Biotechnology Center to Research Triangle Park and Centennial Campus to the Charlotte Research Institute, North Carolina is strategically positioned to remain one of the top producers of science and medical technologies in the country.
As the overseas conflicts draw down, business opportunities within the medical industries and particularly the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and Department of Defense medical commands are increasing, in order to meet the needs of our country’s active duty military, veterans and family members. These opportunities cross the full range of medical goods and services, from staffing and provider services to research and development, pharmaceuticals and medical supplies and equipment.
To help North Carolina businesses leverage these opportunities, the North Carolina Military Business Center connects North Carolina businesses to current contract and supply chain opportunities to help them compete for and win federal contracts – growing their portfolio to include defense and federal clients.
