The new business, POP Coworking, will host a technology lunch at noon Thursday with three industry leaders: Allo Communications, CorKat, and Virso.Allo is a telephone and Internet provider.
CorKat offers "cloud" technology -- computer data storage banks and access.
Virso specializes in the virtualisation and consolidation of server and application platforms, including storage and back-up, according to their website.
Each company will discuss their niche and how they are leading rural communities into the future, POP owner Michelle Stephens said.
After the short presentation, there will be an open discussion between attendees to brainstorm how the North Platte area can grow the technology industry to gain competitive market advantage.

The lunch is sure to be interesting as well as educational, Stephens said.
