A community builder by background and nature, I’m helping to build a world-class team at a world-class technology startup — K4Connect.

Since 2010, I have played a strategic role in helping to build the critical infrastructure for the startup ecosystem in Raleigh and the Triangle region. We have experienced substantial growth in a short period of time, yet we are still a young community and we have a greater story to tell. We welcome you to help us write that story.

The Triangle region is anchored by 3 tier-one research universities and 9 add’l colleges & universities, including 3 HBCUs. We have a great K-12 system (public & private) and a growing population of retirement age professionals moving closer to their kids. We are a unique community made up of 20 different cities and towns, all within a 30 minute drive. We have 2 urban city centers (Raleigh + Durham), located 30 minutes point to point, and 18 other awesome communities woven together like a magic tapestry. It’s fantastic. We have award-winning restaurants and craft breweries; a world-class arts, culture, and live music scene; and an amazing parks and greenway system (10,000 acres of parkland and over 150 miles of connected trails). This result is an amazing quality of life!

The people attracted to the Triangle have a hunger for something bigger than themselves. They come from domestic and international destinations. Regardless of birthplace, age, skin color, gender, background, education, or sexual orientation — All are welcome. Diversity is key to our success. The only requirement is that you desire to contribute to the community. We need people that are interested in working together to shape our future and are willing to pay it forward for the next round of newcomers. If any of this resonates with you, then come join us in Raleigh!
