More news and information for entrepreneurs to use in building and growing their businesses is available from WRAL TechWire as we continue to make additions to our Triangle Startup Guide. The local startup community is constantly growing—prompting regular updates and additions to the guide.

Last week, we added two more resources:

  • We incorporated the New Ventures Accelerator to our list of accelerators and mentorship programs. Though New Ventures is based in Winston-Salem, it welcomes startups across North Carolina and beyond. Over the course of the three-month program, startups obtain residency at Flywheel Coworking, attend regular meetings with experts and mentors, refine their business model and develop their pitch. The program culminates in a demo day where teams pitch to a panel of investors, competing for cash prizes and follow-on investments averaging $50,000 per team. Applications to the 2020 program are due March 31.
  • We updated the inspiration/advice/resources section to include the Bootstrapped Business Podcast, from local entrepreneur Brian Hamilton. In the podcast, Hamilton shares his practical approach to building a bootstrapped business that’s focused on prioritizing getting customers.

Because we consider the guide as a living document that’s flexible to expand as needed, we’d like to solicit your feedback on how we can make it better.

If we missed a resource you think should be added, please don’t hesitate to submit it for inclusion. You can also email me directly or use this contact form.
