RALEIGH – As part the new multimedia series, “Tomorrow’s Unicorns,” aimed at spotlighting the region’s homegrown talent, WRAL TechWire is launching LinkedIn Live “Chats with the Founder” starting on Wednesday, Sept. 22 at 12pm.

The first founder to be featured is Diveplane’s CEO and co-founder Michael Capps, who is on a mission to “keep the humanity” in artificial intelligence. (See full schedule below.)

The live video stream can be found on TechWire’s LinkedIn Page under VIDEO. During the 30-minute stream, attendees can engage with the host and other viewers by reacting, liking or commenting in real time. Once a stream is complete, it will remain on the feed of TechWire’s Page or profile as a video that was ‘Previously recorded live.’

“Tomorrow’s Unicorns: A look at Raleigh’s $1B startup pipeline” is a six-part series that is designed to be a snapshot of the different people and emerging technologies at play in Raleigh’s ecosystem. The series launched last week with an in-depth report and video about Global Data Consortium.

Each week, it will feature a Raleigh-born, “Goldilocks” company — not too small, not too large — that is on track to becoming a $1-billion company. These are the region’s “future breakouts, big fundraisers, acquisition targets and (fingers crossed) IPOs.”

The series is produced with funding support from Innovate Raleigh and other partners.
