IDEA FUND PARTNERS EXITEVENT ARTICLES
4.3.13 -- It's the 15th cycle for NC IDEA, and this time, you already know at least ten of the 30 they picked from the 159 who applied, because ExitEvent has already written about them. In some cases, extensively.
2.11.13 -- NC IDEA, the not-for-profit organization connected to Durham-based venture capital firm Idea Fund Partners, opens the application for its spring startup grant cycle today.
1.28.13 -- On January 29th and February 5th some of the Triangle's best and brightest are gathering together in Durham for CED's Raising the Dough Fundraising Series
12.19.12 -- Windsor Circle, a Durham-based retention marketing startup, is one of those early-stagers that made it look easy.
11.29.12 -- The last time I wrote about NC IDEA handing out up to $50K to deserving startups, I put the rest the idea that it's the best kept secret in the North Carolina startup scene. It's just no longer a secret.
10.30.12 -- With nearly 100 Triangle-area entrepreneurs, investors and students in attendance, 13 InCube companies presented themselves to a panel.
8.28.12 -- Chris Heivly and I hadn't chatted for more than two minutes since the TSF demo day back in June (which happened to be one of the first articles we ever ran). This is pretty much my fault.
7.27.12 -- For years now, I've been calling the NC IDEA Grant the best kept startup secret in North Carolina. A non-profit sister program to local VC firm Idea Fund Partners, they grant up to $50,000 to six or so early-stage startups.
7.18.12 -- Recently, I spent some more time looking at the companies that were able to secure funding during 2011 and the first half of 2012.
7.12.12 -- Groundwork Labs is the first glass panel you see when you descend the stairs that lead from American Tobacco Campus into American Underground, going from the above-ground, more buttoned-up professional world into the creative, chaotic, more mysteriou
6.13.12 -- I found it a little odd when I got the invitation to Lone Rider for a Silicon Valley Bank sponsored get-together last night.
6.7.12 -- It looks like the best kept secret for North Carolina startups is no longer best kept. Truth be told, it was never really much of a secret, just an awesome thing that every startup in the state should take advantage of.
4.18.12 -- jproco: That. Was. Ridiculous. Nearly 200 at @ExitEvent tonight. Killed 2 kegs in 1:15. Thanks to all who showed.
