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 we added last week:

In the Inspiration, Advice and More Resources section of the guide, we added a link to Talking Shop, a new video series from Research Triangle Park-based startup prototyping lab Hangar6. The monthly series features a one-on-one discussion with entrepreneurs and innovators from the Triangle area. Episodes are streamed on Hangar6’s Facebook and YouTube channels.

The third installment will be held on Feb. 9, featuring HowStuffWorks.com Founder Marshall Brain.


On the Competitions, Grants & Other Funding Sources section, we added the RIoT Your Reality Challenge, a new competition program from local Internet of Things group RIoT. The program calls entrepreneurs and innovators to create solutions to a set of civic challenges from the City of Raleigh and the Town of Cary.

The winner gets a cash prize and a spot in the next RIoT Accelerator Program cohort. Applications are due on March 31.


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.
