Read Up On The Startups Presenting At CED’s Venture Connect (Starting Today!)

No, we’re not quite back to in-person conferences, but just one year after hurriedly going virtual at the start of the pandemic, CED’s Venture Connect summit is back online with plenty of new bells and whistles. Let GrepBeat get you ready to make the most of it.

The three-day event runs from this morning (Tuesday) through Thursday. Here is the our preview of the event, and here is the full agenda. One key highlight is that you can book a virtual meeting with any of the startups that particularly catch your eye.

But with so many great companies and engaging content, you’ll probably want to do some pre-event scouting to get the most out of your experience. So far in 2021, we have written features about 15 of the Triangle-based tech startups that will be featured. Namely:
