Over the next five days, we will be at SXSW Interactive in Austin, TX with Raleigh Economic Development. The SXSW Interactive Festival features five days of compelling panel sessions led by the brightest minds in technology and endless networking opportunities. While we are there we will be gaining critical knowledge for helping to enhance the innovation ecosystem here in Raleigh and the Triangle. In conjunction, we will be highlighting Raleigh as a key innovation and entrepreneurial hub in the US and global economy through our various interactions. We will have a strategic focus on venture capital as we talk to other entrepreneurial hubs about how they are attracting funding to their area.
As part of our effort to highlight Raleigh as a key innovation and entrepreneurial hub, we will be publishing content around the strengths of Raleigh, including the IoT scene, the creative Maker’s Movement, Tech Talent and much more! Continue to check back here on our blog to learn about why Raleigh has grown as an innovation hub and what we are learning at SXSW. Also, follow us on social media at @RaleighWake and @WorkTriangleNC, as we push out special snippets about the area.
