RTP 180: Social Entrepreneurship
Nov. 19, The Frontier
As we enter into the season of giving, let’s talk about local companies that strive to give back. No, these aren’t nonprofits – but rather for profit companies with a charitable mission. You’ve probably familiar with the mission of Tom’s or Warby Parker, but did you know the Triangle is home to quite a few companies with similar, well-meaning missions? At November’s RTP 180, we’ll celebrate these social entrepreneurs living right here in our area that believe it’s possible to make a living while also making a difference.

Bitcoin & Business Meetup
Dec. 1, The Frontier
Come discuss the emerging NC legislation that would regulate Bitcoin.
