VergeNC: Putt Putt & Pitches

The Frontier | 800 Park Offices Drive | RTP, NC Oct 28 6:00 pm - Oct 28 7:00 pm

Verge is for all people in the southeast working on or investing in tech startups. We are the best event for meeting and hanging out with other southeast entrepreneurs and software developers.

So whether you've founded a startup, hack at a startup, or both, you're likely to learn something, have a good time, and make some great connections at our monthly meetup.

The Setup:

 

9 companies and organizations will design 9 holes set out to challenge your putt putt skills! Prizes for hole-in-ones, lowest guy score, and lowest girl score will be awarded after the company pitches.

You are encouraged to bring a putter, but we'll have one at each hole for you to use!

Companies pitching this month:

The Train App:
Welcome to a new fitness community. Train is a free mobile app that makes it very simple for users to upload and share up to 8-second videos of themselves doing a workout. They share these exercises to the six main body categories that people Train (shoulders, back, chest, arms, core and legs). Users view new exercises in their corresponding categories. They like and comment on each others posts, and they can follow their favorite accounts to create a curated feed of new exercises.

Sweeps Jobs:

Post a Job. Work gets done. Pay and Review. 

Describe what you need, when, and where, online or by phone. Sweepers get to work according to your schedule, scope, and instruction.Pay when you're happy.
