SoarTriangle launched in 2014 as a part of Google’s #40Forward initiative. This initiative provided a total of $1M to partner organizations who planned and executed programs to increase the representation of women in their start-up communities.

In August 2016, SoarTriangle became a program administered by NC IDEA Foundation. NC IDEA is a private foundation committed to supporting business innovation and economic advancement in North Carolina. The organization serves as a catalyst for young, high-growth technology companies by promoting initiatives that foster growth and guides these companies to become major contributors to the state’s business community.
