Entrepreneurship / Start-ups

Triangle Resources for Entrepreneurs

Leveraging these free resources can make the difference between success and failure, launch and no launch.

You will be better able to mix-and-match the help you need to develop, introduce, and market your product and to stretch startup dollars.


Katie A. Gailes

Director, Entrepreneurship Initiatives

Wake Technical Community College

Katie is an experienced professional with over 10 years of experience counseling and coaching small business owners and entrepreneurs. Though most have been service-oriented, the common thread among all of them has been lack of familiarity with the resources in the Triangle and how to use them. Often, her role with small business owners and entrepreneurs has been performing triage on their needs so that she can refer them to the right next place to go. Before moving into small business consulting, she had a long career with IBM where she worked in sales, channel marketing, integrated product development, public and analyst relations, and worldwide channel enablement. She managed centralized and distributed teams for several divisions.
