CUBE: The Hub for Social Innovation at UNC

The CUBE is the hub for social innovation at UNC-Chapel Hill. 

UNC Social Innovators enter the CUBE to take their ideas to scale.

First, the CUBE is a “space” for UNC social innovators to put their ideas for solving the world’s greatest problems into practice. The CUBE offers selected ventures 24/7 access to a co-working space for 2 years to work on their ideas.

More than a physical space, it's a community, serving as a nexus point where social innovators at UNC can interact and learn from peers, all of whom are driven to create lasting positive social change.

But that's not all, the CUBE is also a one-stop shop for support. These social ventures can 
access seed capital, mentoring, pro-bono support services, individualized assistance to benchmark their progress, and expert feedback.

Offered to the public, its social innovation workshop series help aspiring social entrepreneurs one step and one topic at a time. Designed to help social innovators with the issues and questions they may be wrestling with, social innovators can obtain the know-how and put it into practice.
