Sectors

Wake County targets specific clusters, which are interconnected businesses that support organizations in a specific industry. Back in 2002, for example, based on research from the Wake County Economic Development team, the Triangle contained 20 medical device companies. As of 2014, that number has increased to more than 100 with more start-ups, new companies moving to the area, and more of our existing companies evolving and developing new technologies for medical applications.

Specifically in Cary, clusters include Information Technology, Software, Smart Grid Technology, Biomedical, Nanotechnology and other technology industries based on Cary’s proximity to Research Triangle Park.
