Vision

Elevating North Carolina as a global leader in innovation and entrepreneurship

What we asked ourselves

  • What would happen if it was really easy to form expert teams throughout the state to tackle big problems, create companies and new jobs?
  • What if it was simple for North Carolina academic start-ups to figure out how to translate their ideas into action, get funded, and accelerate their business?
  • What about combining the financial strength of Charlotte with the technology of the Research Triangle Park?
  • Could Wilmington be a hub for new start-ups similar to San Diego?
