Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Senator Hoeven is in Fargo teaming up with the area's best and brightest in technology.

Hoeven hosted his annual State of Technology Conference at the Ramada showcasing local businesses that use technology to drive success. He says technology has helped to make our state's economy number one in the country, but should be used more.

The conference highlighted growing local companies taking advantage of technology, like Myriad Devices. That company has had an 800% increase in revenue in the past few years.

Senator John Hoeven - (R) North Dakota: "North Dakota has the number one economy in the country. Everybody hears about energy and they hear about agriculture, but our technology based businesses are driving that development. Right here in the red river valley, it's happening in spades."

Other companies with speakers at the conference ranged from Microsoft, Pedigree Technologies, and Evolution1, to Appareo Systems.
