    Life sciences and healthcare are the perfect fit for Holly Springs. Sequris was a good start but I think Holly Springs should invest more in attracting additional companies within this sector. I think Frisco TX is one model to look at, as Dallas expanded so did the industry in neighboring towns. ChooseNJ and NJ Biotech have great campaigns around the reasons NJ is a good fit for the Biotech industry, the reasons here in Holly Springs are similar (but even more convincing I believe) The cost of leasing office space in RTP, Durham, Raleigh, Cary, and Morrisville will likely drive some of the industry to soon move to neighboring towns, I would love to see Holly Springs be poised to be the next hot bed. More of this type of business would lead to additional revenues for local business during lunch hour or happy hour particularly pumping money right back into our community.

    That has been the focus for almost two decades and we have Novartis/Seqiris to show for it. We also have UNC Rex, Duke and all the other medical related business. By the time they are all done they are likely to bring well over $1B in tax base. That is the equivalent of over 1000 “mom and pop” businesses. We need to continue on this course.

    Healthcare is generally viewed a recession-proof industry. We all need it at some point. As the baby-boomer cohort continues to age and will be followed by the even larger Gen Y and Gen Z cohorts, I dont see the need for healthcare decreasing for generations to come. Life sciences and technology are also great industry sectors.
