ASHEVILLE, N.C. - October 6, 2022 - (

Ecobot, the premier digital solution for pre-construction environmental permitting, has been selected as a finalist for the NC TECH Awards AgTech/CleanTech award. The Ecobot platform facilitates efficient, accurate, and robust environmental data collection for mandatory permits ahead of large-scale infrastructure projects, resulting in faster construction starts and providing optimal data for engineers to craft resilient assets.

The NC Tech Awards is North Carolina's only statewide technology awards program that recognizes innovation, growth and leadership in the tech sector and is presented by the NC TECH (North Carolina Technology Association). Ecobot was one of the 2020 NC TECH Awards Startups to Watch.

"For over 20 years, NC TECH has celebrated companies, organizations and individuals for outstanding achievement at the NC TECH Awards. As a finalist this year, Ecobot has distinguished itself as one of the state's innovative and emergent leaders," stated Brooks Raiford, NC TECH's President and CEO.

"We're thrilled to be recognized at home in North Carolina for the transformative capacity Ecobot offers the environmental and construction industries," said Lee Lance, Ecobot cofounder and CEO. "Our growth is a direct result of the impact that our amazing team, in partnership with our customers, has on the industry."

Ecobot's finalist slot in the NC TECH Awards comes on the heels of the company's recent recognition in NEXT Upstate's 7th Annual Venture Summit as a Top 10 Startup in the Carolinas, which took place on Sept. 22, 2022, in Greenville, S.C. The NEXT Venture Summit recognizes "the best and brightest startups in the region."

In the last year, the total volume of reports generated using Ecobot has doubled. The Ecobot platform continues to expand to facilitate the work of geographically distributed, remote teams on large-scale projects, and to address a growing scope of pre-construction environmental surveys.
