WRAL TechWire has been making weekly updates to keep content fresh and relevant in our exclusive Triangle Startup Guide.
Last week, we made two new additions to our list of accelerators and mentorship programs:
- We added Launch Wake County, which offers business training, mentorship and fundraising assistance to local entrepreneurs and small business owners. Applications to the fall 2020 cohorts are now open: Launch Apex, LaunchKnightdale, Launch Rolesville and LaunchRaleigh applications are due on July 31; and LaunchHollySprings applications are due August 10.
- We also added the Duke-UNICEF Innovation Accelerator to the list. The two-year program supports social entrepreneurs who are building lasting solutions for children around the world. Cohorts are selected based on their proposed solutions to pre-selected problems. Teams receive funding, mentorship and support from Duke staff, faculty, students and partners.
We also added two more items to our list of COVID-19 funding and support resources for startups and small businesses.
- Durham Has You Covered: An online directory of locally produced face coverings. Individuals and business owners can search the database to find masks for themselves and their employees.
- Triangle Community Foundation’s COVID-19 response resources for local nonprofits and students.
