HQ At A Glance

Our Culture

  • "HQ Raleigh is Building Space for _______"
➡️This week we are learning more how HQ is building space for community. .
.
Our team would like to introduce Tony and Trish Holden, founders of @upliftnow_barter a free barter marketplace and community development nonprofit. Their story is one of love and enterprise!
.
UpliftNow is the first and ONLY free barter marketplace in the world, that is focused on helping entrepreneurs channel additional resources to the nonprofit and charitable communities. We all want to give a little more, but do not always have to money or services to just give freely. UpliftNow is solving this issue by providing a vehicle for everyone to give more, without tapping their bank account. .

Learn more about this team and their story in our latest blog post!

One of our larger teams is Real Magic and their Levitate team, founded by Jesse Lipson. Jesse started Real Magic in 2017, and then in April of 2018, the team launched Levitate, their first “keep in touch” app with just 7 employees. Today, they are a team of 25 and growing fast. This team is a mix of product, sales, and customer success professionals with a mission to make the world a more creative and entrepreneurial place. See what the have to say about growth below⬇️

HQ Raleigh has been a great home for us since day one. Aside from its attractive locations near downtown, being around other daring entrepreneurs has fueled our passion and dedication. HQ has also been super accommodating as we've quadrupled in size. Starting from one office on the 9th floor, we now take up the entire 11th floor. We are excited to be moving to HQ@Gateway in October as we continue to grow.
.
.
.
One of our core values is “Make data-driven decisions”, so when it comes to hiring, we try to be proactive and attract talent based on goals we’ve set for ourselves. Additionally, as a startup, one of the most important things we care about is culture. So when it comes to growing the team, we want to make sure that we are all lending a helping hand when it comes to getting new employees on-boarded, making them feel welcomed, and empowered to make a difference.

“It’s difficult to put value on a community or network, but the people that I have gotten a chance to meet through my time at HQ have opened doors that I never knew existed. Even though my team is spread out across the state and I can easily work from home, I choose to drive 30 minutes to HQ so I can take advantage of all the resources available and test out ideas/prototypes with other creative entrepreneurs.”

“I’ve been working out of HQ for over 3 years and love it. The staff is super friendly, I have access to phone booths for calls when I don’t want to annoy people, the conference rooms are easy to book, and the events they put on are fantastic. Not only is this a place where I can take a break from the isolation of working from home but it’s the perfect spot to network with other solopreneurs who I can spit ball ideas with.”

“HQ Raleigh has been amazing for me because it truly brings the entrepreneurial community together. For me, being an entrepreneur out of NC State, HQ allowed me to kick-start my business and get the necessary connections and resources to grow my company. They are always willing to help their members succeed however they can.”

Robyn Keys
Says

“Being and entrepreneur is like learning to ride a bike, and once you’ve mastered the skill, you need to learn how to drive a car… and the next day it’s a plane, and the next day it’s a rocket ship. Being part of the HQ community not only makes me feel like I’m around like minded individuals, but also that I’m surrounded by people who have already learned how to ride that bike, or could teach me how to fly that plane, and would even help me fly that rocket ship if I needed.It’s is more than just a place to work from and make great connections though, it’s an environment and a culture that fosters communal thinking, developmental learning, resource sharing, and even great friendships.”
