April 13 – AgTech Field Trip to Mertek Solutions!

AgTech Field Trip to Mertek Solutions in Sanford, NC

Mertek Solutions is a part of the growing AgTech capability and community in Lee County, NC. Join us for an AgTech Field Trip!

It’s Spring, the days are longer, and we are going on an agtech field trip to tour Mertek Solutions! The Mertek Team makes stuff, and they can design, fabricate, and automate all kinds of AgTech solutions. We are excited to see their Sanford headquarters (only 25 minutes from Cary)! Jerry Pedley, Mertek President, has invited members of Sanford and Lee County’s growing AgTech ecosystem to join and share information about entrepreneurial support and opportunities for Ag entrepreneurs. The folks at Mertek want a crowd of happy, not hangry people, so they have kindly offered to feed us before the tour! Plan to arrive at Mertek on April 13th at 5:00pm sharp. This meeting requires registration via MeetUp. Please message the organizers on MeetUp with any dietary restrictions.
