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.

With the coronavirus pandemic unfolding, startups may be in need of immediate funding to keep their businesses afloat in an economic downturn. In April, we decided to add COVID-specific funding sources to our competitions/grants/other funding section of the guide.

Last week, we added more resources to the list, including more local loan programs covering Apex and Fuquay-Varina, more grant resources for COVID-related research and development, a new grant program from Hello Allice, a City of Raleigh video on unemployment for small business owners, and more helpful resources. We also added our coverage of the latest $330 billion round of small business loans.

Check out the guide for the latest information on how to get financial assistance for your startup.

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.
