THE FRONTIER | 800 PARK OFFICES DRIVE, RTP May 17 5:00 pm - May 17 7:30 pm

The Frontier Campus is a hub for startups and small businesses in The Triangle. We like to say that we welcome companies of all shapes, sizes, and sectors. From individuals in the early stages of ideating a business to a five-person operation who just gained funding for a permanent home, there is a seat for everyone at the table within our community.

In that spirit, this RTP180 will be a nod to Triangle companies who are doing startup research. We are talking unprecedented, bootstrapped research that was done with a startup mentality—perhaps an operation that started small, gained momentum, and scaled. The next big thing in research may be happening right here in our backyard!
