WRAL TechWire’s exclusive Triangle Startup Guide is continually growing with new resources for local startups. Whether you’re looking for VC or angel funding, local coworking spaces or free networking events, the Triangle Startup Guide has all the resources you need to take your venture to the next level.
Every week, we add new resources to keep content fresh and relevant. Today’s update includes changes and additions to the Accelerators and Mentorship Programs and COVID-19 Resources sections of the guide:
In the “COVID-19 Resources” section, we added a listing for the new Restaurant Revitalization Fund from the U.S. Small Business Administration. The program offers $28.6 billion in grants to assist restaurants and bars with pandemic-related revenue losses (up to $10 million per business or $5 million per location). Of that total, $5 billion will be set aside for small businesses with 2019 gross receipts of less than $500,000. Applications will launch soon.
On the “Accelerators and Mentorship Programs” page, we updated the New Ventures Accelerator listing to include new details about the program:
Last week, Winston-Salem’s Flywheel Coworking announced an expansion to its New Ventures Challenge, in which startup teams compete for seed funding, access to industry experts and mentors, and a spot in the 12-week New Ventures Accelerator. This year, Flywheel is adding four new tracks: Health/Wellness/Nutrition, AgTech, B2B Software and The Come Up, a program for minority founders.
Applications to the 2021 cohort are due on June 7.
