Talent Jam is coming to Watauga County! Join us for an awesome networking event in place of our monthly Startup Social!

An event that authentically connects our local talent and the organizations that need them in ways that traditional networking events or job fairs simply don’t. This is a high-energy, hyperlocal event that features dueling, open-mic pitches where companies looking for talent, and people that have talent, each deliver alternating 60-second pitches. The event is followed by a casual but impactful networking reception.
