Why does River Cities Capital Funds support CED as a strategic partner?
We are big believers in the entrepreneurial/technology ecosystem in the Triangle...RCCF views CED as the key tenant to organizing the Triangle's innovation and entrepreneurial resources. Having invested in many other areas of the country, it is very evident that many of these other regions lack a sophisticated organization like CED to get the most out of its innovation economy. We feel lucky to have an organization like CED in the Triangle and are excited about our continued partnership.

With more than 4,000 active members and 700 companies represented, as well as an ever-expanding national community committed to providing support, our expansive membership of industry veterans, successful innovators and enterprising startups comprises the largest and longest-running network for entrepreneurs in the country. Collectively raising $8.5 billion over the past 31 years, CED-connected entrepreneurial companies continue to support the growth of our powerful network, developing dynamic, inspiring means for expanding the entrepreneurial ecosystem in North Carolina.
As the Triangle’s go-to entrepreneurial network for more than three decades, CED is dedicated to connecting and growing startups and businesses by cultivating a self-sustaining community of entrepreneurship in North Carolina and beyond.
Our Powerfully Connected Entrepreneurial Network
With just the right combination of opportunity, resources and talent, the Triangle region of North Carolina is experiencing explosive growth and business success. Behind that growth is a community with a 30-year commitment to fostering new insights in technology-based industries, and a track record of successful startups in North Carolina. At the core of this community is CED, which has formed a powerful network of investors, entrepreneurs, corporate partners, mentors and startup support organizations.
By continually connecting new businesses with investors, industry leaders and other supportive institutions, it’s our goal to build a self-sustaining entrepreneurial environment that encourages innovative and inventive ideas, helping those with traction to reach their full potential. By making the right connections and sharing experience, knowledge and resources, we can work together to ensure further growth and success for North Carolina’s entrepreneurs.
