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.

This week, we added two more resources to the guide:

  • We added a new listing to the challenges/grants/more funding section: Black Girl Ventures, which recently opened a Durham chapter, provides funding, mentoring and coaching, crowdfunding and community connections to women-founded tech startups.
  • We also made a new addition to our list of accelerators: UNC Chapel Hill’s E(I) Lab, a six-month program where graduate students, professional students and postdocs team up to create prototypes to solve needs in healthcare.

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.
