About this event

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.

Four Accelerators

This year, we are running four accelerators, using our LMS to deliver the core curriculum and SME's to deliver expertise in the market verticals. For an overview go to The accelerators will run from August 3 through Demo Days on October 28-29.

Here are details on each accelerator:
