A thriving technology startup ecosystem provides great opportunity to grow jobs and economic stability across North Carolina.  NC TECH promotes and supports a thriving early-stage community by providing visibility and connections for tech startups through NC TECH for STARTUPS.

NC TECH for STARTUPS is a special initiative to support tech startups with targeted benefits around visibility, peer interaction, information referral, and connections.  We recognize that while entrepreneurs are often limited on funds, you need visibility for your company in order to grow.  NC TECH for STARTUPS members receive all the benefits of NC TECH membership, plus added perks tailored to help you start to grow your business, including:

Visibity for Your Company

We will work to help you gain visibility through NC TECH’s communication and social media channels.  We can craft a unique company profile for our blog, tweet your news to our followers, and share special announcements in our monthly newsletter.

Credibility for Your Company

We will list your company in NC TECH’s online and printed tech directories, provide opportunities for expert speakers at events/meetings (as available), and can share your white papers or guest columns in our monthly newsletter.

Access to Business Relationships for You and Your Company

We provide in person and virtual venues for you to network with peers, potential customers, and advisors.
