We just concluded the Startup Summit Conference at North Carolina State University. It was an exciting day of over 20+ speakers with over 200+ people in attendance. A great interactive and educational conference featuring keynotes and panelists from top entrepreneurs, innovators, and executives here in Research Triangle Park.
The conference provided a great opportunity to meet people in the startup, venture, and tech world with crash courses taught by experts on important topics faced throughout the startup journey. Plus, during breaks the conference featured the "Consulting Corner" with a team of pros in various areas including sales, hiring, marketing, business intelligence, and funding offering 1v1 advice. The Startup Summit educated, inspired, and connected hundreds of startup minded people and founders from all over the region. A great day to learn and apply key insights needed to be successful.
A huge special thanks to all the speakers for their time and sharing great advice. You can see all the kind speakers who contributed and made this conference possible along with the super sponsors here: http://startupsummitnc.com/schedule/ Enclosed are some wisdom points shared throughout the day from our keynotes David Gardner, Donald Thompson, and Jason Williamson to recap for you some key learnings:
*“Diversity is being invited to the party. Inclusion is being asked to dance.”
Overall a great conference thanks to the speakers, sponsors, experts, and NC State for hosting. A Big Thank you to Mark Bavisotto, Brooke Nivens, and Kristin Gabriele from the Startup Summit NC team to help make this conference come alive!
