It's been over a year in the making, but the vision has taken form and the work behind siliconhollar.org is in motion.
This work started last July when I met my friend and co-founder (of PickSix), Sam Glover. We quickly discovered we had a lot in common - we were both co-founders of startups, were currently working in high tech and had big dreams of helping to grow a startup community in the Boone area. We both love working for smaller, nimble, high growth companies that are doing big things and thought why isn't anyone driving a startup scene in Boone and Blowing Rock right now?
Fast forward to September 2015, and Startup High Country (SHC) and Silicon Hollar was born. (We can't take credit for the name Silicon Hollar. James Bauler, a friend and colleague gets credit for that one!)
Come back and visit - starting next week we'll be adding to the Startup Space often. Who knows, maybe you'll be inspired to start the next high flying technology company in the high country.
