RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK – With weekly updates to keep content fresh, WRAL TechWire’s Triangle Startup Guide offers a timely resource package for anyone looking to start or grow a business in the Triangle area.
We started 2022 by recapping every update made to the guide in 2021, and now we’re back another new resource for local entrepreneurs. The latest update comes to the “Competitions, Grants & Other Funding Sources” section of the guide, which features dozens of programs for startups to get more funding and exposure beyond traditional funding rounds.
Today, we added the upcoming Duke Cyber Pitch Competition, a program headed by Duke University’s Sanford Cyber Policy Program. The competition, held on Feb. 26 from 12–5 p.m., targets students with business ideas in the fields of cybersecurity, data protection, privacy and online safety.
Selected individuals or teams will pitch their ventures to investment experts for a chance to win $25,000 and other prizes. Winners will also receive a grant from Paladin Capital, an investment firm headquartered in Washington, D.C.
Interested students have until Feb. 1 to apply to pitch at the event.
Every week, we update the guide with new resources for local entrepreneurs for our exclusive Triangle Startup Guide. If we missed something, please feel free to suggest it for inclusion. You can email me directly or use this contact form.
