March Startup Social Recap


If you weren't able to attend March's Silicon Hollar Startup Social, at the Greenhouse in downtown Boone, do not fear - here's the recap and you can join us for the next event on April 14th.

Huge shoutouts to everyone that contributed and attended! A big shout out to Danny Wilcox from Appalachian Mountain Brewery, and Tim Herdklotz from Booneshine, for supplying super tasty cold beverages for the evening. Even though at this point we shouldn't be, we were surprised once again by the great turnout (it was App State's Spring Break), with over 40 coders, local entrepreneurs and high country residents who work in, and have a desire to contribute to, high growth technology in Boone. 

Steve Mercil from Angel Capital Group talked about the formation of the angel fund that's currently taking shape right here in Boone.  We'll be sure to keep everyone updated on the progress and we think before long, we'll see an investment from this group.  How cool was it to hear from (and see in action) Jimmy from Spinboxx?   Also, Vixster has officially launched, so go check out their service - we've only heard and experienced good things.  Be on the look out for a special event at the May social, sponsored by Vixster.    

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