Nanotech is future of N.D.
Jack Uldrich: I had the opportunity to give the opening presentation at the North Dakota Chamber of Commerce's Annual meeting in Bismarck. Given that North Dakota was recently ranked 44th among the 50 states in a nationwide study reviewing state's effectiveness in leveraging nanotechnology for economic development opportunities, it might be assumed that there was little interest and even less opportunity for North Dakota in exploring the field.
Nothing could be further from the truth. To begin, although North Dakota has a small population and is still highly reliant on agriculture, there are some very exciting opportunities for the state in the field of nanotechnology, as well as a surprisingly strong foundation upon which to build.
