Editor's note: ExitEvent and WRALTechWire are cooperating in presenting news about the region's entrepreneurial sector. Today, ExitEvent founder Joe Procopio, who also is a contributor to WRALTechWire, talks about the changes taking place as the website and Startup Social events transition to new ownership.
RALEIGH, N.C. - Monday night marked the first ExitEvent Startup Social where it was public knowledge that I was no longer in charge. To be honest, I've actually not been in charge for a couple of them now, but with the news having broken earlier this month of ExitEvent's acquisition by American Underground, there was no more false pretense, so to speak.
Now, I can't say I spent a whole lot of time between the acquisition and the formal announcement worrying about whether or not things would change. This is due to two reasons:
1) The team at American Underground and I spent a lot of time making sure that what I didn't want to change would not.
2) We then spent an inordinate amount of time making sure that everything else would.
I like change. Change is good.
Those changes are starting to play out.
