is an experiential program at UNC-Chapel Hill that brings together graduate students, professional students, and postdocs from diverse disciplines across our campus to conceive, develop, and test innovative solutions to unmet needs in the state of North Carolina.
Participants in our program will work with diverse disciplines across the UNC campus to solve one of our state’s current issues, including healthcare, environment, public safety, and many more. Over three days, this group will be introduced to the tenets of entrepreneurship: idea generation, the art of customer discovery, opportunity evaluation, strategic planning, funding, company formation, launch, as well as growth.
Every member of this cohort will walk away with an understanding of how to hone their personal entrepreneurial mindset. They will also learn core skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, teamwork, digital literacy, intercultural fluency, growth mindset, project management, effective written and oral communication, and organizational leadership skills.
