Event Details

Innovation. Education. Industry. These are powerful angles – and what the Research Triangle Park is known for.

To showcase our sum, we want to feature the brightest minds from our region in a series of casual, thematic and insightful events hosted here at our HQ building – under the umbrella of a new series called “180°.”

Speakers from our three founding universities, local companies and the community at large will be called upon to don their finest Chucks and take to the stage to speak passionately about what matters to them.

For our first iteration, “180°: Entrepreneurship in the Triangle,” we invite you to join us on March 19 from 5:30-8:30, at RTP’s headquarters (12 Davis Drive, Durham, NC).

Join us as Will Hardison emcees, Scarborough Fare Catering serves up ham and biscuits, FullSteam taps intodeliciously delicious kegs of beer; Raleigh Screen Print slices and dices hot fresh tees right off the press; and the Triangle Interactive Marketing Association (TIMA) delivers all manner of greenscreen- and livestream-related hijinx.

Our doors open at 5:00 and you should probably come help us test out the taps before the show starts; early arrival ensures a seat.

Tickets are somewhat limited and will be gone... well... immediately.


A reception chock full o'mingling will follow.
