American City Business Journals, which operates more than 40 business newspapers across the country, is starting Triad Inno to cover innovation and entrepreneurs in the Greensboro/Winston-Salem area.
Triad Business Journal editor in chief Lloyd Whittington writes, “We’re now taking it up a notch with the Sept. 14 launch of a new platform, branded as Triad Inno. The digital media, events and data enterprise will focus on emerging innovators, growth-stage startups and their investors, local incubators and accelerators and other elements of the innovation ecosystem. Beyond offering news and profiles, our goal is to help connect and build upon the local innovator community.
“Triad Inno will be part of a national network in more than 40 cities nationwide through the Triad Business Journal’s parent company, American City Business Journals. Innovation is a long-established brand founded in Boston in 2009 and acquired by ACBJ in 2012. Currently, about 20 ACBJ cities already have Inno websites operating, and on Sept. 14, the rest of the markets around the country, including Triad Inno, will go live.
“Triad Inno will be led by newly hired TBJ reporter Lillian Johnson, whose beats will be innovation, health care and higher education. Special Sections Editor Jane Little will build out a resource guide, and the entire TBJ newsroom will also contribute, as innovation spans all sectors of the Triad economy, from manufacturing and logistics to retail and real estate.”
