Meet Jared! He is a NC State Alumni who describes himself as ‘a bit of a marketing nerd who loves brands that are disrupting their industry’. Jared loves Raleigh and thinks we’re blessed to live in a growing city with so much potential. He was also an inaugural member of the NC State Entrepreneurship Clinic, a partner of HQ Raleigh’s. Among Jared’s interests, he’s a huge fan of football, bourbon, and craft beers. Jared’s company, Pitch & Primer, is a concept for a men’s retail store in downtown Raleigh where quality styles and craft beer are under one roof. Pitch & Primer is a place where men can shop local and nationally made clothing and accessories, while enjoying a North Carolina craft beer. We focus on the quality and the craftsmanship when curating brands and beers to sell with a heavy emphasis on locally made. We’re looking to redefine the way guys buy clothes by creating an environment unlike any other shopping experience.
