We took an RV, filled it with entrepreneurs and hopped on the road to Austin! #Raleigh2SXSW
We're sure by now you've heard that Raleigh, and the Triangle Region of North Carolina, are the smartest places to work, live, play and learn. We've been shouting it to the roof tops, and now we're shouting it at one of the Nation's biggest stages, South By Southwest (SXSW) in Austin, Texas.
We organized a delegation of #smartypants -entrepreneurs and city officials- to come with us and show Austin what we're made of. We'll be connecting with entrepreneurs, tech talent and companies, while promoting Raleigh and our assets!
The Raleigh RV is pulling out from HQ Raleigh (one of our totally awesome co-working spaces) around 10 am on Thursday, March 6th and arriving in Austin by Saturday, March 8th. We'll be making stops at entrepreneurial spaces in Atlanta, New Orleans, and more! So stay tuned! You never know where we'll be, or what we'll be doing, next!
Who's rolling with us? The cool kids of course!
