Innovate Carolina: Our Programming Partners

Our innovation programming is powered in part by Innovate Carolina– UNC-Chapel Hill’s primary team for innovation, entrepreneurship, and economic development. They offer regular workshops, fireside chats, panel discussions, and professional networking opportunities to help any individual or team who are looking to sharpen their practice. 

During these interactive events, you’ll meet and work with professors, researchers, and expert practitioners from the university, plus professional service providers and experienced entrepreneurs from the greater community and around the world. Regardless of industry, Innovate Carolina programming at 79°West can help you gain new entrepreneurial skills and build your professional network.
