Panel Discussion: Key Factors For Site Selection

As emerging industries see unprecedented growth, site selection for these high-growth firms is evolving in unprecedented ways. Specific workforce skills, proximity to natural resources and supply chain, tech infrastructure, and access to capital are all high on the list for firms in industries like Electric Vehicles, BioTech and Healthcare, Fintech, and Agritech. While business costs and quality of life remain important factors, the lens through which emerging industries evaluate locations for new or expanding operations has shifted. This panel discussion will share the experiences of experts navigating the landscape.
