RALEIGH – The Triangle’s got a new startup meetup in town. Enter Startup Summit – a one-day conference featuring leading keynote speakers and master classes from top entrepreneurs, innovators and executives.
On Tuesday, around 250 people packed into NC State University’s Hunt Library second floor Duke Energy Hall for the inaugural event.
An impressive lineup of speakers continued throughout the day – including Savvy Growth founder Grace Ueng and Teamworks’ sales leader Larry Long Jr. – tackling everything from growth marketing and sales strategies, to building a winning culture.
The event culminated with a Startup Summit Shark Tank, with three local startups making pitches to a panel of venture capitalists. In the end, Zogo Finance, which is building a mobile banking app between parents and teens, came away with $300,000 in backing.
