Norris Gentry, Chairman of Madison County Board of Commissioners

"As a community, Madison County, is moving forward to empower our residents with the technology of today and tomorrow.  Access to these resources are critical to the continuing progress in an expanding and more prosperous future.  We embrace the challenge and support the Unite WNC goals to help support the regions growth."

Wanda Greene, Buncombe County Manager

"I believe that designing our digital future provides a tremendous opportunity to develop a strategic plan for the technology sector in our region. I am supportive of the UNITE WNC project and look forward to working with others to strengthen our talent base in this fast paced digital world."

David N. Wilcox, Vice President Tower Associates, Inc.

"Mature business ideas that took years to develop now happen overnight. Overwhelming data, untrained or undertrained employees, inadequate equipment and infrastructures and cyber-attacks are all battles that rage at every turn. Businesses depend on a collaborative model helping each other and that is why the UNITE WNC spring event is so vital for our region – to plan our digital IT future."

Josh Dorfman, Director of Venture Asheville and Asheville Angels

"It’s clear that technology will play a key role in WNC’s future. But whether it becomes a driving transformational force for regional economic prosperity is up to all of us to determine. UNITE WNC is playing a crucial role in charting the path forward! "
