Created to highlight college entrepreneurs who are committed to addressing social issues facing our communities, Idea Generation Next: College Edition will help students build the skills and networks needed to bring their ideas forward. Inspiration, creativity (and a touch of competition!) to showcase ideas of college-age women and people of color who are currently underrepresented in the entrepreneurial community. The Triangle, known for its innovative spirit, will thrive as the changing demographics of the region are reflected in our future leaders and innovators.
We anticipate 300 Triangle area college students, academic advisers, business and community leaders along with innovators and entrepreneurs will participate in a high-energy, interactive pitch competition followed by an accelerator program to build their skill sets. This is an opportunity to hear creative ideas, foster teamwork, and support the entrepreneurial spirit of our community. Participating universities include NCCU, NCSU, Shaw University, Saint Augustine’s University, Wake Technical Community College, and William Peace University.
