April Startup Social Recap

If you weren't able to attend April'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.

As always, a big thank you to everyone that contributed and attended! Once again Appalachian Mountain Brewery, and Booneshine, hooked us all up with some super tasty cold beverages for the evening.

We had a really wonderful turnout, with by far the most attendance of student entrepreneurs and coders we've had.  We're super pumped for all of this momentum and are really excited for what the next few months are going to bring the area.  To learn more about the work we're doing at Startup High Country, please read Jason Reagan's awesome article in the most recent High Country Magazine.

The winner's from our High Country Hacks hackathon presented their project Verb, which really has lots of potential - definitely be on the lookout for more from this team.  James Bauler talked about the work Cruxolve is doing and their new project WorkPlace.  Brandon told us about his project - Church Learn - which is just getting started.  

There are a couple of cool job openings in the area as well: Nordic PC is looking for a web developer to build out a new site for them and Jackson Sumner is currently hiring engineers.

The next Silicon Hollar Startup Social will happen on May 12th, 5:30, at the Transportation Isight Center on App State's Campus.
