Anthony moderated the “Government’s Role with Startups” panel during Triangle Entrepreneurship Week. Here is some film coverage of the event. Sorry for the fragmentation and horrible angle!
Annie Freed is the President of FemCity RTP which is a chapter of FemFessionals. They are a huge proponent of women in business. Annie spends some time talking about all of the philanthropic events that the group hosts or participates in. Great women on a great mission!
FemFessionals is in 40 cities currently and plan to be in 80 cities by the end of the year. Yes, you read that right, they are experiencing very exciting, explosive growth. Programs and groups like this are very cool because of their social mission. Sit back and enjoy this great interview!
Follow Annie @FemCityRTP!

Kelsey Swanson is Business Development for Kompleks Creative, a Durham-based company. As a UNC graduate, she used social media to find a job. Very cool stuff! Obviously Kelsey is a female, but she has some really interesting thoughts on female entrepreneurship in the Triangle.
Anthony does something that he has never done before. If you are a female entrepreneur, he wants you to get in touch with him. Whenever there is an issue brought up, the community must rally to solve it. Watch the interview to see what Kelsey thinks is a huge issue in the Triangle!

Will Hardison is a rising star in the Triangle entrepreneurship scene. As an ECU graduate, he moved to Indianapolis and started his first company. Will compares their entrepreneurial support system to the Triangles. Here’s a hint – we win!
He is working on some very cool projects (Fan Base) that have a lot of buzz. In order to get the word out in a competitive market, Will is a regular at numerous networking events around the Triangle. Follow him on Twitter @WillHardison!
Update: ECU beat Appalachian State!
Dwight Bassett is the Economic Development Manager for the City of Raleigh. He is another person on the list of individuals who are making a huge impact in the Triangle. Innovation and entrepreneurship are a main focus for Dwight, which has led to some very cool initiatives.
Not very many people can say they have a Harley Davidson motorcycle and hold a “bureaucratic’ position. Dwight happens to be one of those people but he tends to leave the bureaucratic aspects of his job for other people. Next on the plate is telling the story of the City of Raleigh. We are excited to see what that entails!
Let us know what you think about the City of Raleigh’s progress by tweeting us @TripreneurTV. We really like the outrageous and absurd tweets that we have been getting. Keep them up!
