It dawned on me a few months ago, I’ve lived in the Triad for 17 years. That’s almost as long as I lived in my hometown.
During my time here, I’ve met a ton of enormously talented entrepreneurs. This shouldn’t come as a surprise, since companies like RF Micro, Wrangler, Hanes, Krispy Kreme, The Fresh Market and LabCorp, to name a few, were founded here.
With all this talent and more and more startups cropping up in the area, I thought it would be cool to shine a light on the men and women making an impact in the Triad. Other communities have embraced “the rising tide lifts all ships” mindset. Look at Made in NY or Downtown Durham Startups.
Why can’t we do something like that here? We can.
So, I’m excited to announce Triad Startups (shipped by this smart dude and yours truly).
It’s early, and we’re not sure where it will go, but our hope is to provide a directory of the cool stuff happening in NC’s Triad and tell the stories of the people behind it. This area has a lot to offer.
If you’re a Triad startup or would like to help the project, please add your company to the list and reach out.
