Why did you start your business in North Carolina?
A better sense of community and a general willingness to assist more so than larger communities.
What is the best part about running your business in your community?
Apex, NC. Small town feel, but with access to business leaders and entrepreneurship ecosystems in Cary, Raleigh, and Durham.
What do you believe your North Carolina community has that other startup hubs can’t offer?
People are more approachable due to population/requests for time being less in absolute terms. Thus people (advisors, mentors, investors, potential employees, etc) are not as overwhelmed with requests for their time as in other places.
In 3 words, how would you describe the entrepreneurial culture in NC?
Hungry. Collaborative. "Something to prove."
