More news and information for entrepreneurs to use in building and growing businesses is available from WRAL TechWire as we continue to make additions to our Triangle Startup Guide.

Also, be sure to check out our extensive calendar listings for December and January, plus our meetups list – all linked at the bottom of this post.

Every Monday, we’re sharing a digest of the changes and additions we make to the Triangle Startup Guide.

Last week, we made three new additions to the inspiration/advice/more resources section of the guide:

  • We added the Small Business and Technology Development Center’s new Intellectual Property Guide, which provides education for small businesses and inventors on the potential time and financial investments that may be involved with developing an invention and maintaining intellectual property rights. The guide goes in-depth into patents and manufacturing, with helpful references and other resources.
  • We also added a link to Duke Fuqua Insights, a blog where faculty and experts in Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business share details on some of the studies and research they’re working on. A lot of the subject matter is relevant to entrepreneurs, including how to succeed at crowdfunding, CFO and CMO surveys, and improving communication between operations and finance teams. There’s also a Duke Fuqua Insights YouTube playlist, where professors and experts summarize their findings.
  • We included a link to this feature from TechWire, in which Hatteras Venture Partners General Partner Bob Ingram—who has been instrumental in helping to build up the Triangle’s technology and life science ecosystem—shared his view of the Triangle’s growth and what’s needed for the future. His insight can give entrepreneurs some perspective on their community—past and present.

Is there something you think the guide is missing? Feel free to send me an email or tweet me (@ShannonCuthrell) your suggestions and feedback.
