RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. – Triangle Entrepreneurship Week introduces an exciting new approach to entrepreneurial programs.

From November 14-18, dozens of focused events will give entrepreneurs an opportunity to directly engage with successful entrepreneurs, business professionals, investors and community leaders.

Starting with NC State’s Entrepreneurship Lecture Series and surrounding the Internet Summit, this innovative approach to advising entrepreneurs is taking place throughout Raleigh, Durham and the greater Triangle area by:

• Digging into the details of several grass root industries,
• Meeting real investors and getting feedback on your business ideas,
• Exploring how to create solid business ideas,
• Seeing how communities foster entrepreneurship,
• Learning how to establish an effective financing strategy,
• Getting the straight talk about how to raise money and
• Seeing some real “green” businesses.

Conducted by a cast of dozens of leading entrepreneurs, business leaders, investors and community development executives, this event promises to provide “up front and in your face” advice and perspective that entrepreneurs need in order to establish their own businesses. In addition, there is plenty of time devoted to collaboration and networking with all attendees so you can discuss all aspects of entrepreneurship and how to get businesses started.

As entrepreneurs, there is a lot to see and take advantage of in this series of events. This inaugural event should lead to many more to come and provide an opportunity for entrepreneurs to make connections they need to create and grow their own businesses. Just having the chance to meet people that have been entrepreneurs will be a gold mine of information and know-how.

The relationships established in this event could lead to the information and assistance you need to be successful.
Triangle Entrepreneurship Week is a fantastic opportunity for entrepreneurs, business leaders and investors to connect in a way that we have not seen in this area before and is a must for any entrepreneur in any industry.

This event is supported by: The Idea Hive, Entrepreneurship Initiative at NC State, Poole College of Management at NC State, Scale Finance, Downtown Raleigh Alliance, EntreDot, Inception Micro Angel Fund – RTP, The State Club, Durham Chamber, Bull City Forward, Triangle Blvd, Center for Creative Marketing, and TTYLapp.com.
