After a few weeks of email discussions and meetings lead by CED a local group of entrepreneurs and investors have thrown their support behind LaunchBox Digital and Triangle Startup Factory, two RTP based startup company incubators who will join forces under the LaunchBox Digital brand. I'm really excited to see the incubator model coming to the Triangle and starting with an established brand name with LaunchBox means that some of the early ground work has already been done. For instance, upon the graduation of recent LaunchBox Digital classes TechCrunch has provided good coverage and exposure for the graduating companies and their products/services. The announcement of LaunchBox starting up in RTP is no exception. I look forward to being involved either as a spectator, adviser, or mentor to the startups and the incubators as they work together to create the next great companies in this part of the country.
