Transparent Entrepreneurship Advice and Case Studies in Business Growth

North Carolina is on the verge. If you’re in the tech industry you’ve probably heard about the powerhouse trifecta of Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill. But it’s not just the proximity of these three college towns that make this state perfect to launch and build a high-growth venture.

The startup resources in North Carolina empower entrepreneurs to think big. Startup spaces like American Underground, HQ Raleigh, and The Frontier are fertile soil for founders to sprout new products and grow healthy businesses. Accelerators like The Startup Factory, Groundworks Labs, and Citrix Startup Accelerator ensure fresh crops of healthy companies while North Carolina investors provide follow-on capital to catalyze hyper-growth.

Obviously, quality talent from universities like NC State, University of North Carolina, and Duke help fuel the startup and technology ecosystem. But larger tech companies in the area like Red Hat, Cisco, IBM, and Google help attract and retain talent within the Tar Heel state. With resources like this, it’s no wonder this region is consistently ranked as a top U.S. tech hub. So, check out Verge NC and see what this community is all about.
