GrepBeat is a tech news site that covers the latest and greatest startups for the Triangle and surrounding area.

We started GrepBeat in August 2018 as a service to the local entrepreneurial community. Our mission is to reduce the friction in starting and growing the area’s tech startups by telling their stories.

The site is run by Pete McEntegart and a team of undergraduate students from the journalism school at UNC Chapel Hill.

The gold of GrepBeat is the twice-a-week email newsletter that summarizes the days events with wit and insight.

The silver of GrepBeat is the monthly happy hour, usually at nearby Durham and Raleigh drinking establishments. These happy hours are great way to meet local tech entrepreneurs and their supporters. Plus, the first round is free — drinks that is. Money is never free.
