RIoT Underground


You’ve found us! Welcome to RIoT Underground, the place where you hear from instigators who are changing the world with disruptive technology. Our job? Pulling back the curtain. We talk to passionate disruptors about what they see, what they do, how they got to where they are, and what’s coming next. Have you ever wondered how people drive through their mistakes, learning from them, and capitalizing on them? Have you ever wondered how people find a career in tech, or start a company, or become great leaders? Do you want to hear more about people who succeed - the real stories, not just the wins we see in a highlight reel? Good - us too. And we’re going to bring that and more, here, at RIoT Underground. RIoT Underground is created and produced at RIoT Studios. RIoT produces events, conferences and educational courses around the world and runs an early-stage startup-accelerator in Raleigh, North Carolina. Our nonprofit also operates a wireless test and certification facility under the Wireless Research Center brand. Learn how to engage by visiting us at Tune in, subscribe - join the underground. We’ll see you in the next episode.
