Roderick Frizzelle, a Stampede 2.0 entrepreneur, is leading a new meetup group called NewMe. NewMe is part of a national network of minority entrepreneurs, primarily in tech, that is working to support minority startups with networking and advising. I can’t say enough good things about Roderick and I think this meetup group is a vital part of the entrepreneurial ecosystem being created in Durham. At the end of the day, startups need a strong network and NewMe is providing one.
