Thoughts About tekMountain

Adam Burke

CEO of Kalabur February 7, 2018
“I was amazed to find such a connected and vibrant workspace in Wilmington, North
Carolina. tekMountain draws some of the best business minds and technologists together
for the purpose of growing and scaling high-impact, technology based companies.”

Mayor Bill Saffo

Mayor of Wilmington February 9, 2018
“tekMountain has been an amazing addition to our economic development efforts.
They continue to bring the world’s best resources to our area that are instrumental in
developing a workforce capable of excelling in the digitally connected marketplace.”

Woody White

Chairman of County Commisioners February 15, 2018

“TekMountain has been instrumental in its pursuit of a vision to transform the new economy in southeastern North Carolina. The parent company, CastleBranch, has rolled up its sleeves and gotten the job done since they moved here in the early 2000’s. TekMountain is following in that same tradition.”

Dr. Stephen Harper

Distiguished Professor of Entrepreneurship February 27, 2018

tekMountain has played a leading role and in some cases the leading role in fostering and accelerating the development of this area’s entrepreneurial ecosystem. tekMountain’s multi-dimensional impact includes its role in fostering entrepreneurship at UNCW. Yet these efforts are just a fraction of the ways tekMountain and Castle Branch have demonstrated their commitment to enhancing our region’s “quality of place.”

This must be Google East …if it isn’t, it should be!!! Best place I’ve contracted work, and enjoyed the complex and tour by Ty Downing of Say It Social.

Greatest place to work in the world. There are so many bright people here who want to collaborate and celebrate each other’s victories. I can’t imagine a cooler place for a start up company to call home.

I attended the Military Spouse Conference hosted by Tek Mountain in Wilmington, NC. I wanted to take the time to thank them for housing such an important event. It is an amazingly inspirational space and run by amazing people. #milspocon2017

This place is great! It is like a playground for entrepreneurs and innovation. I’m not just talking about the free beer, gym membership or game area – I mean the ecosystem is great and everyone is eager to push you forward from seasoned mentors to other business owners. If there is something you need, someone in this building is willing to step up and offer some help.

I wish I had a tech company startup so I could house it in their space. They have co-work space but also ping pong, fitness and even a brewery for the tenants to enjoy.

The future of collaborative innovation and progress works together here.

By far the best place to start a business or co-work in Wilmington. Fantastic people, work space, gym, brewery, and mentors.

This is an excellent place for technology startup companies who are not able to have their own space just yet. There are a lot of cool companies located here. This building is really cool and there are lots of things here like exercise balls and little office nests where you can chill and a lots of materials that startups can use.

Mark Dudley

Marketing Manager 2018-02-19 15:25:22

This place is awesome. It’s a great place to meet business owners, entrepreneurs, tech savvy people and mentors. Great work space and meeting rooms, food trucks daily, Ted Talks on Tuesdays, etc. Then you have the whole lower level which is a game room, brewery and gym! Can’t beat this place if you’re looking for a shared work space or tech incubator.

It’s like some one plopped a “valley style” facility right here in Wilmington. I’ve enjoyed several community events led by thought leaders and was able to network with like-minded folks. Rockstar group, immaculate facility, and they have skee ball. I scored a 360, just saying, aim for those Bennys.
