RIoT and NC State’s student showcase event was yesterday evening, and the innovative graduate student teams were profiled in today’s WRAL TechWire post.

“In partnership with RIoT, a crowd packed The Cannon Room in downtown Raleigh on Tuesday night to check out the latest class projects, with attendees given ‘investor dollars’ to invest in preferred teams.”
