::TechJournal Event Draws 600+ People

Friday, May 25, 2007

DURHAM -- The TechJournal South newspaper that covers the high-tech scene in Research Triangle Park and across the southeast held its popular semi-annual TechJournal DeckParty on Wednesday afternoon, drawing over 600 people to the event.

The event drew hundreds of biotech, software, hardware, biomed, and other technology executives to mix and mingle at the private event, which is the largest tech networking event in North Carolina. 

The event was held at the Peabody Place deck behind the former Fowler's building next to Morgan Imports in downtown Durham. 

The popular event has been held in RTP and Raleigh previously but many people were happy to see the event return to the original "deck" where the TechJournal originally started the event in 2001.

"It was great to return to our original location for the deckparty," said Eric Gregg, the TechJournal South publisher.  "It's a homecoming of sorts for both the TechJournal and our readers."

The event was also a reunion of sorts for many former Fusion Ventures workers, including Gregg.  Until they closed in 2001, the Fusion Ventures venture capital firm had housed a dot com business incubator in offices behind the deck.  On the deck, Fusion held its own deckparties and the TechJournal followed suit, resuming the popular event.

Although Fusion and some of the dot coms were a victim of the bursting of the Internet bubble, many of the alumni from the firms have gone on to start their own tech companies or become leaders at other RTP firms.  Fusion alumni from smaller firms and even large ones like IBM and Grant Thornton were happy to attend the event and see each other again.

Sponsors included Alpheon, Cirrus Pharmaceuticals, DASH Systems, Hill Smith King & Wood, Hosted Solutions, Hughes Pittman & Gupton, Hutchison Law Group, Keystone Crossing Townhomes, Maverick Endeavors, Oceanos Marketing, Paetec Corp, Preation, Time Warner Cable Business Class, and TransPerfect Translations.

As a matter of disclosure, it should be noted that the TechJournal was started by the same person who also started the Raleigh Chronicle.  However, the publications are under separate ownership and management and the Chronicle founder is no longer associated with the TechJournal.
