Investing in the Next Generation of Triangle Leaders and Innovators
About the Innovation Series:
Designed to highlight college entrepreneurs who are committed to addressing social issues facing our communities, this series of events will help them build the skills and networks to bring their ideas forward. This program will promote ideas of college-age women and people of color who are currently underrepresented in the entrepreneurial community.
Several Triangle area college students, academic advisors, business and community leaders along with innovators and entrepreneurs will participate in a high-energy, interactive pitch competition followed by an accelerator program to build their skill sets. This is an opportunity to hear creative ideas, foster teamwork, and support the entrepreneurial spirit of the Triangle. Participating universities include, Meredith College, NCCU, NCSU, Shaw University, Saint Augustine’s University, Wake Technical Community College, and William Peace University.
