RTP180: Pay It Forward

*IN-PERSON & VIRTUAL* RTP180: Pay It Forward sponsored by RTI International

Innovation. Education. Industry. These are powerful angles—and what Research Triangle Park is known for. At RTP180, speakers from our founding Universities, Park companies and the North Carolina community at-large, are called upon to speak passionately and authentically about what matters to them. The twist? They must do it in 5 minutes or less!

We ask our speakers to be intentional with their 300 seconds up on the virtual stage. What perspective of their industry are they able to share? What are their passions? What would our community be surprised to learn? What case studies in North Carolina are cutting edge?

For this month’s #RTP180 we’re also asking: “What does paying it forward look like for you?” That may mean donating your time, resources or even sharing knowledge. At our November 18 presentation, leaders from local nonprofits will share the ways they and their organizations make an impact in the Triangle. Get inspired while you enjoy complimentary popcorn and a beer from Fullsteam RTP.
