Can you share some pain points related to COVID WFH operations ?

Will you be providing any guidance as to the needs from the different (City/County) departments?
rob

Our technology is very much remote-oriented (ideally for a COVID environment), but I would like to understand better whether there is an intersection between what we have and what you have identified as a strong need.

Is being headquartered in Durham a strict requirement? We’re a tech non-profit headquartered in Boston, but one of our execs lives and works in Durham. Our team is distributed across the country…
Nydia Assaf
01:05:06
thank you for clarifying! I asked because it is a requisite for the Durham vendor system and there is a lead time there as well.
Nathalie Floyd
01:05:35
@dvd, no strict requirement for being headquartered in Durham
