Welcome to the very first post on GrepBeat, a media startup covering the startup community in Raleigh-Durham. We hope you’ll make yourself at home. Please, put your feet up on the virtual furniture, and don’t worry—there’s no dress code. We know that you, like us, are busy building businesses or helping set the stage for them to start and grow, so there’s not much time or need for niceties.
But every startup needs a mission. Ours is to tell the stories of this area’s small (for now) but mighty startups and their entrepreneurs in an engaging and colorful way. Think of GrepBeat as TechCrunch for the Triangle, with a splash of BuzzFeed for seasoning.
You can learn a little more about us here—including what “grep” means—and sign up for our twice-a-week (Tuesday and Thursday) newsletter here. But this site is intended to be about you, the members of the Triangle startup community and those who care about it. Let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org if we’re falling short. Or, you know, if you like us.
We’d love to chat more, but we need to get back to work. But seriously, don’t be a stranger!
