  • TC Durham MeetUp: WaterplayUSA

    WaterplayUSA Aims To Disrupt Watersports

    What’s the first thing you think of when you hear watersports? For me, it’s fishing and wake-boarding, but the term means different things to different people. That’s why WaterplayUSA exists – to help watersports fanatics get wet and wild on vacation. Whether you’re into jetskis, sailboating, or scuba, these guys are ready to splash you all over. Read More

    Bound: If Custom Notebooks Be The Food Of Love, Print On

    One interesting manufacturing start-up we met in Durham last week was Bound. This small printing company offers notebooks in multiple styles (including a vegan leather Moleskine-esque number) but with a twist. You can, if you so desire, have something different printed on every page. You can make a little notebook for just a range of dates or add a map, some tic-tac-toe boards, and a… Read More

  • TC Southeast Tour Wrap-Up

    Southeast Meetup Tour Wrap-Up: A Week In Pictures (And Videos)

    2,400 miles. Five cities. Two Honda Pilots. Seven days. And five children under the age of 7. Why? Because we love startups, and we heard that there is this huge country that’s south of New York and East of Silicon Valley, so we decided to explore. The pay-off has already been greater than you can imagine, as we met more entrepreneurs than my inbox can even handle and we saw… Read More

  • TC Atlanta MeetUp: John Biggs Looks At Glove That Types Wirelessly

    DIY Wireless Typing Glove Is The Future Of Michael Jackson Impersonation/Data Entry

    As we were wandering through the Atlanta meet-up last week we stumbled upon a charming young man wearing a glove studded with circuit boards and embroidered with what looked like silver thread. Upon closer inspection, it turned out that it was a wild homegrown glove made by a pair of former design students. Read More

    Reminder: TechCrunch Is Coming To Greenville, SC Tonight! (UPDATED LOCATION)

    For many a TechCruncher, the past week has been the same as most. Break some news, go to some events, turn the world on with your smile… you know the drill. But for John Biggs, Josh Zelman and I (and at times Matt Burns), this week has been a whirlwind of crazy awesome parties, Southeastern drawls, incredibly cool startup pitches, and an amazing amount of both pork and beer. It’s… Read More

  • Atlanta MeetUp: LGBT Mini Panel

    An Honest Discussion About Being Gay, Working In Tech, And Living In The South

    We didn’t get the most amazing reaction when we announced that our Southeast Mini Meetup Tour would also have a partial focus on gay rights and homophobic legislation in the south. We’re a tech blog, and we really shouldn’t be dabbling in politics or human rights. And yet, even issues that seem far removed circle back around to the tech industry, the startup scene, and… Read More

Yep, it’s going to be quite the road trip, and with the help of our sponsor Honda, it should be a comfy one too. Read More
