Charlotte’s brand new tech incubator RevTech to showcase first Class of 2012October 2, 2012
Charlotte, NC recently hit the national headlines by hosting the Democratic National Convention, but this southern town known mostly for its banks and suits, has a hip new force of local tech entrepreneurs that have burst onto the scene. Housed at RevTech Labs, this is the first program in Charlotte geared toward developing early stage tech companies. These new start-ups will be featured at a Demo Day to showcase its first class of companies on Wednesday October 3rd from 2-5pm. Five promising new companies will have a chance to demonstrate the progress they've made in the last three months.
Investors will have an opportunity to learn about each innovative startup, make
some early introductions, and to connect with the tech community in the city. Charlotte Mayor Anthony Foxx will be in attendance with other leading city bigwigs and investors and hopefully they will take notice.
Charlotte is not traditionally a place where tech startups are common, but with the founding of RevTech Labs in the heart of the Queen City, by partners Hackers and Founders, Skookum Digital Works and Packard Place, things are moving in the right direction.
Take a look at the first class of 2012:
