Inaugural Demo Day Success!

HQ Raleigh was proud to host the first-ever ThinkHouse Demo Day. The eight ThinkHouse fellows have been working for months developing and refining their business ventures with help from the program’s mentors and resources. Their experience culminated at Demo Day, where they each pitch for five minutes to a group of potential investors and supporters. The event was a tremendous success for HQ Raleigh and ThinkHouse.

Co-Founders of ThinkHouse, Jason Widen and Christopher Gergen, are extremely excited to see what the fellow’s futures hold. ThinkHouse Raleigh, located in historic Boylan Heights, is just the first for Widen and Gergen. They plan to expand the program nationally, impacting thousands of recent graduates eager to explore their entrepreneurial ventures.

Widen and Gergen are currently selecting the second class of ThinkHouse Raleigh. Applications are due by June 15th and can be found at

Yesterday, June 3rd, the ThinkHouse was featured on ABC 11 Eye Witness News.

“RALEIGH (WTVD) –You know MTV’s iconic reality show — the Real World. We’ve got something like that in Raleigh but with real smarts.

Instead of drama and conflicts, this house is full of local entrepreneurs brainstorming ideas and creating the next big thing.

ThinkHouse is an intense nine-month experience that gives entrepreneurs the environment, resources and skills to launch successful ventures and build profitable companies.”
