StartUp NC Weekend focused on entrepreneurial opportunities in IT and E-Waste sectors. Our preference is computer technology. We are gathering creative minds interested in collaborating to profitably address this global problem of excessive E-Waste.
What happens to old electronic equipment and why does it matter? Some is refurbished. However, only a small percentage is recycled. This competition event is a small experiment with the potential for global ramifications and real profit. You're only limited by your imagination and level of commitment to succeed. Join us in Raleigh September 26-28 to create viable business opportunities in the e-waste sector.
-MJ Clark, Organizer
