Great news for the region!
An announcement was made today about a direct flight to/from Raleigh to San Francisco.
From this, I think we will see a boost to:
- west coast VCs being more willing to invest in NC
- west coast companies being more interested in buying startups here
- easier for companies in NC and west coast to partner
I've been hoping and talking about this ever since I became a VC 11+ years ago. It will help reduce the friction of west coast companies/firms working with NC-based ones.
