Out Of Office



OOO MeetUp with RDU Artificial Intelligence

What are OOO Meetups?

At Frontier RTP, we are constantly growing and making connections. We developed OOO Meetups as a way of helping connect like-minded professionals, entrepreneurs, and industry insiders during our regular, weekly Out of Office “OOO” events.

With each meetup, we work with a co-host to facilitate the networking and educational session while we pour the drinks. 

Our hope is that the meetups will spark dialogue, start relationships, and make your happy hour meaningful. Did we mention there will be free craft beer from Fullsteam Brewery, wine selected by RTP Uncorked, and non-alcoholic options?
