CED event gives entrepreneurs chance to network

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. -

People in the Triangle interested in jobs in technology got a chance to network Wednesday during the second day of the CED Conference at the Raleigh Convention Center.

The CED – the Council for Entrepreneurial Development  - brought leaders of the tech sector in the Triangle together for a chance to discuss strategy.

The speakers Wednesday morning included the CEO of Bandwidth as well as a representative from MetLife, which is bringing thousands of jobs to the Cary area.

The conference also focuses on inspiring entrepreneurs.

"Entrepreneurship is very hot these days everybody wants to start a company," said Joan Siefert, the president of the CED. "The difference between taking a viable idea and turning it into a successful business, that's the gap we're hoping to bridge here today."
