Staying Event-ful

Since we at The Startup Factory announced that we’re taking this party statewide (external links), I’ve been on the road more than usual. While that means more quality time with I-40 singing along to 70s rock with Chris and Dave (pictured above), it also means more time at events and new people. A packed house at Iron Clad Brewery in Wilmington, an early morning at 1 Million Cups in Asheville, or a busy afternoon in the Triad is exactly where I want to be as we take stock of entrepreneurial communities around North Carolina.

The thing about a crowded room is, it can be hard to find a place to start meeting the movers and shakers I’m seeking.

I’ve come up with a few ways to make the most of these opportunities. All of these tips help me focus on my goal of starting good conversations.
