Event Description

The 2021 New Ventures program has expanded to offer four accelerators for early-stage founders.

It’s an all-new program

We are expanding the New Ventures investment and accelerator program significantly this year. We will be raising funds in multiple regions from the NC Core Region (Triad through Charlotte) and in Upstate SC. This will align with the expansion of our accelerators based on regional knowledge assets in the regions where we have current or future Flywheel innovation centers.

Come an learn about the application process, the mentors and SMEs, the schedule and the investment opportunity.
