NC COIN + SameGrain


The North Carolina Center of Innovation Network (NC COIN) is where constructive conversations take place, connections are made and leveraged, and ideas to advance technology application and economic growth, move forward.  To further faciliate this mission, NC COIN has partnered with SameGrain, a private networking app, that will enable NC COIN members to match with like-minded researchers that share multiple in-depth areas in common whether they are located in the same room, on the same campus, or anywhere in the world.


SameGrain matches on over 45+ million topics including all of Wikipedia and is now matching NC COIN members and fellow innovaters that use the tools and techniques of nano or biotechnology.  Members can find others that are interested in the same fields, same topics, share the same hobbies and much more.  The opportunities are endless.


The SameGrain app is currently available to anyone with an Apple iOS device (e.g., iPhone or iPad running iOS 7 or above).  SameGrain will be launching their Web and Android app in 2015.  So, hang in there if you don't have an iOS device.
