Special thanks to an amazing innovator and my pal Dezbee McDaniel for acting as cover-person in the featured image! North Carolina has really vibrant venture and startup scenes, and my innovation story started, gulp, when cell phones networks were the hot industry–and revived with The Triangle Startup Factory in a much smaller–but equally cool and quickly growing–American Underground just down the road in Durham as well as Raleigh Founded (back in the HQ days) and The Frontier RTP.
I’m also lucky to work with, and have right next-door, the incredible UNC EShip Center and to interact with brilliant innovators from across the campus through Innovate Carolina including the Eshelman Institute for Innovation, 1789 Venture Lab and my home-away-from-home Launch Chapel Hill (ask me someday, or never, about Timmy Tuesdays)
