North Carolina Investment Forum Conference Proceedings

The Frank H. Kenan Institute of Private Enterprise hosted its inaugural North Carolina Investment Forum (NCIF) November 1, 2017, at the Kenan Center on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The forum brought together investors, top state government officials, representatives of economic development groups and leading academics to discuss how North Carolina can promote private sector business growth. The group identified a host of actionable items. As an immediate next step, the Kenan Institute is working with its partners to form an NCIF Executive Committee, which will coordinate and oversee the work of a task force charged with developing and executing a plan for specific initiatives, including:

  • Promoting creation, launch and investment in new businesses;
  • Providing resources for growth of established businesses; and
  • Stimulating private sector employment in economically distressed communities.
