ChannelAdvisor is a silver sponsor of the conference, and CEO Scot Wingo will facilitate the featured company presentations on September 18. Later that day during the closing lunch ceremony, ChannelAdvisor will be honored by North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory alongside six other local companies that have also completed an initial public offering (IPO) so far in 2013.
“CED is the Southeast’s largest entrepreneurial support organization and is instrumental in promoting the growth of high-impact companies in North Carolina,” said Wingo. “CED offers the tools and networking opportunities that local companies need to raise money and be successful. ChannelAdvisor has a long-standing relationship with CED, and we’re thrilled to be a part of the Tech Venture conference again this year. It is also an honor for ChannelAdvisor to be recognized by Governor McCrory along with several other North Carolina businesses that have become public companies this year and are driving innovation in our state.”
“There is much to celebrate this year during the CED Tech Venture Conference,” said Dhruv Patel, CED’s program director. “We’ve assembled an impressive array of successful entrepreneurs to discuss how to grow a company, new and growth stage startups to demonstrate their latest endeavors, and speakers from N.C. and across the country. It seems like the ideal time to honor this record-setting number of NC IPOs. We’re thankful that the Governor could clear his schedule to help celebrate business success and that the leadership teams from these companies will join us that day.”
