City Startup Labs kicked-off 2015 with a new cohort of 17 student/entrepreneurs, in Charlotte, NC, on January 23rd. This latest session, which is our second, started with the Cultivation Module, where the students examine who they are and why they are, where they are. We believe that this is a critical first step in the process of getting oriented towards taking on the role of entrepreneur. The module was facilitated by a team from Unlocking Futures, from New York City. The Cultivation Module serves as the foundation upon which we layer business acumen and fundaments. It also is the first in a series of progressive modules that the students sequence through.
We were thrilled to conduct the weekend long module at the state-of-the-art PORTAL Building on UNCC’s campus. This was made possible because of a new partner – Ventureprise, headed by Paul Wetenhall.
For black male millennials interested in participating in City Startup Labs’ Entrepreneurial Academy, CSL is now offering two sessions (Winter/Summer) per year. Candidates can get the application process going by completing Step One.
