About the
Triangle Tweener List

This list features details on over 250 curated startups in the Triangle (the North Carolina high-tech Research Triangle Park corridor that includes Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill) that I call Tweeners.

What is a Triangle Tweener?

Triangle Tweeners have the following criteria:

1. They must be headquartered in the Triangle.

2. They need to be a technology company — software, hardware, tech-enabled services, digitally native brands, e-commerce, etc.

3. Have a minimum of $1,000,000/yr ($80k/m) in sales OR 10 people. Or as we say in startup-land, $1m ARR or $80k MRR.

Once a company is over $80m/yr in revenue or 500 employees they ‘graduate’ off the list.

Think of Triangle Tweeners as the ‘Goldilocks’ companies in the Triangle — not too small and not too large. These are our future breakouts, big fund-raisers, acquisition targets and (fingers crossed) IPOs.

Tweeners are also great for folks moving to the area to target for their first Triangle gig, or if you are at a big company locally and want to try something more entrepreneurial — check out a Tweener today!
