Ventureprise Ecosystem

Innovation-Based Entrepreneurship is Our Focus

Ventureprise, Inc. is a non-profit organization, affiliated with UNC Charlotte, building strong support for the Charlotte region’s innovators and entrepreneurs. We support researchers, inventors, and entrepreneurs through education, networking, public policy communications and in-depth business advisory services.

Entrepreneurs and small businesses are the life blood of job growth and economic well-being in the United States. Over the last 30 years, all net new job growth nationally has come from young high growth companies.  However, recent data suggests that new business formation is slowing and job creation has declined.  Ventureprise is about reversing this trend and creating a fertile region that stimulates innovation and business formation.

The Charlotte region has its own attributes and strengths that contribute to the vitality of our location.  Ventureprise has taken the lead on collaborating with support organizations throughout the region to develop a regional strategy for entrepreneurism and innovation.  By focusing on providing coordination and delivery of educational programs, networking events, business assessment and opportunities for capital formation, Ventureprise is committed to helping the Charlotte region become one of the nation’s leading locations for nurturing of high growth business and social enterprises, development of  new products and services, and creation of jobs and wealth that benefit all of our citizens.
