Launching the Venture 2007

University of North Carolina, 2006 - $12,100

In 2000, the Kenan-Flagler Business School and the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill created Launching the Venture, a hands-on course designed to help UNC students, faculty and staff launch a range of social, commercial, technological and scientific ventures. Its primary objective is to provide a resource to inventors, social innovators, and nascent entrepreneurs to learn business concept evaluation, business planning, marketing, and implementation skills.

This project offers continuing support for Launching the Venture. NCIIA funding will provide E-Team resources and seed funding for project identification, prototyping and business plan development.
