Born in the heart of Winston-Salem’s entrepreneurial ecosystem, EarlyGroove was pitched by Founder and CEO, Deborah Smith, at the February 2018 Triad Techstars Women’s Startup Weekend sponsored by Flywheel and HUSTLE Winston-Salem. Over the next year, EarlyGroove developed with the help of local North Carolina entrepreneurial resources including Venture Cafe, Launch Greensboro, Forsyth Tech Small Business Center, and Center for Creative Economy.
Across the country incubators, small business centers, coworking spaces, accelerators, educators, networkers, business developers, and community organizers are fueling local entrepreneurial ecosystems with resources and amazing events on a regular basis. We encourage anybody looking to start a business, vet an idea, or just a meet a bunch of cool people, to check out the Innovation & Entrepreneurship events in your community!
At EarlyGroove we get the word out about all the groovy local opportunities – entrepreneurial and otherwise – that encourage innovation, creativity, and connection. We built EarlyGroove for ourselves, our friends, neighbors, and all the groovy artists, entrepreneurs, and organizations that bring art, inspiration, awareness, and joy to our communities on a regular basis.
