Interested in an upfront look into world-renowned innovation? The Missouri Chamber Foundation invites you to join the Missouri Technology Alliance and members of the Legislative Innovation and Technology Caucus on a trip to North Carolina’s Research Triangle.


Embark on a trip to one of the world’s leading technology hubs, North Carolina’s Research Triangle, through an experiential event hosted by the Missouri Chamber Foundation. Intentional policy and economic development initiatives have built the Research Triangle into a hotbed for technology industry. It is home to many of the world’s top technology, biotech, agtech and health care companies.

We will meet with business leaders, policymakers and other tech stakeholders and tour some amazing facilities, including the sole active pharmaceutical ingredient facility that produces acetaminophen in the United States. We have planned some unique social time as well, including dinner at the legendary Angus Barn, where many of the state’s business and legislative deals are made.

This event is sold out.

What’s included:

  • Access to exclusive meetings and tours in the Research Triangle
  • Meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) in North Carolina
  • Ground transportation in North Carolina
