December Recap: Silicon Hollar Startup Social

We had a great turnout last month with lots of fresh new faces.  Once again our local breweries (Appalachian Mountain Brewery and Booneshine) delivered with some tasty cold beverages.  James Bance announced a new fund, already seeded with $25K -- you can find more information about this initiative here.  Additionally we heard from Chris Grasinger about High Country Coding Corps and the exciting work they are doing and PickSix's lead developer, Justin Warnes talked about how they are staying ahead of the curve with their technology stack.  Joe Cazier of Appalachian State also spoke on being selected to lead the initiative to determine how the UNC system is looking to change (hopefully for the better) how they address handling the intellectual property produced in a university setting.  Dale Yarborogh, coder and a Junior at ASU, talked about his product that will be a game changing transparency and funding tool for non-profits.

The next Silicon Hollar Startup Social will happen on January 14th, at 5:30pm in the Greenhouse. Looking forward to seeing everyone there!
