The number of meetup and networking events for entrepreneurs across the Triangle is growing – and one of the new ones, Startup and Play, earns kudos from Chris Heivly, co-managing partner at Triangle Startup Factory.

“In addition to free pizza and good beer (is there bad free beer) the hosts conducted one of the funnest group games I have been part of – a loud boisterous self-regulating game of rock-paper-scissors where winners found each other until there was just one winner,” Heivly wrote in a blog post at Triangle Tech Talk.

“Aaron Gerry and team are well on their way in establishing a great event for all.”

The latest event took place at The HUB, a fast-growing business space focusing on startups in Raleigh on Monday.

In addition to rock-paper-scissors, Starup and Play featured 10 emerging companies, as noted by Heivly:

  • Kramden
  • Chez Moi Bakery
  • TripreneurTV
  • Shop Local Raleigh
  • Subject 2 Change
  • Groundworkk
  • LiPi
  • Sixth Sun
  • CityFabric
  • Koyr, Inc.
  • GEMAtouch
  • Evolvemint

Yes, building a business is hard work – but you can have fun while doing it.
