As we highlighted in a post last week, WRAL TechWire’s exclusive Triangle Startup Guide is always growing with new resources for local startups. Whether you’re looking for VC or angel funding sources, local coworking spaces, member organizations or free networking events, the Triangle Startup Guide has all the resources you need to take your venture to the next level.

Every week, we add new resources to keep content fresh and relevant. Here’s what’s new this week:

In the COVID resources section of the guide, we added these updates:

In the communities/networks/memberships section of the guide, we added the Black Entrepreneur Initiative at UNC, which supports Black entrepreneurs, creators and innovators on UNC Chapel Hill’s campus. The organization promotes Black-led ventures, provides branding and professional development resources for both current and aspiring Black entrepreneurs, and connects the community through networking events, career opportunities and communication guidance.

In the competitions, grants and other funding section of the guide, we added a new startup competition from NC State University’s Office of Research Commercialization: The Sweat Equity Challenge is an app idea competition for undergraduate and graduate students, and faculty/staff, who will receive customer/market feedback to validate their ideas, develop a prototype, launch a startup and begin looking for funding to help take their business to the next level.

Applications are open now; the deadline is March 1.

We make weekly additions to the Triangle Startup Guide. As always, if we missed a resource you’d like to add, please feel free to submit it for inclusion. You can email me directly, tweet me @shannoncuthrell or use this contact form.
