On Thursday, October 10, Shoeboxed and American Underground will be hosting the first annual Fall Startup Fest. The event will start at 5 P.M. and all local companies, entrepreneurs and Shoeboxed users are welcome to attend! It will be held at Shoeboxed Headquarters at 112 Broadway St. Suite B. Durham, NC 27701.

The party is free to attend, but we will be collecting donations for TEACCH. TEACCH is a local organization out of Chapel Hill that helps adults with autism find jobs. Shoeboxed is an avid supporter of TEACCH and we currently employ six of their members!

We will have lots of activities set up for an evening of no-pressure networking:

  • Locally brewed beer courtesy of American Underground
  • Food from Will & Pop’s food truck (and catered dessert)
  • Live music courtesy of ReverbNation
  • Cornhole, darts and ping pong for some friendly inter-company competition
  • 3-D printer demo from Splat Space
  • ELF bike demo from Organic Transit
  • Pitches from 2-3 startups from the American Underground (investors will be in attendance)

If you haven’t already RSVP’d, then please use this link to sign up you and your team. Also, if you’re interested in co-sponsoring the event or setting up a booth of your own, please be sure to send me an email at mikeh@team.shoeboxed.com.

We look forward to seeing you all on October 10th!
