WRAL TechWire’s Triangle Startup Guide continues to expand with new resources to meet the needs of local entrepreneurs and innovators.
One section of the guide includes a list of the most popular free events and meetups in the Triangle area. This resource complements TechWire’s existing community calendar, weekly events column and a running list of meetup groups.
The Triangle Startup Guide features some of the Triangle’s longest-running meetups, such as 1 Million Cups and Triangle Code for America (both launched in 2013), along with some newer ones, like Women in Tech Allies and RTP AgBio + AgTech (both launched in 2017) and Startup Summit (established in 2018).
Starting in March, the coronavirus pandemic upended the way meetups and events are traditionally run. But local organizations and community groups were quick to adapt to the changing circumstances. Nearly all of the groups listed in our Triangle Startup Guide have now successfully pivoted to virtual programming via Zoom and other video conferencing platforms.
This pivot holds long-term value, as the recent surge in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations has delayed the return to in-person events for the foreseeable future.
