Center helps with entrepreneurial opportunities

From a chance to win $1,000 in a business idea competition this fall to an opportunity to study global entrepreneurship in Europe next spring, Greensboro-area college students will find a full slate of offerings at UNCG’s North Carolina Entrepreneurship Center (NCEC).

“The entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well in Greensboro, but we need to do more to engage and support young entrepreneurs so they can fulfill their dreams – whether that means starting a business or a non-profit or becoming a highly valued entrepreneurial employee at a small or large organization,” says Bryan Toney, director of the NCEC.

NCEC offerings include:

  • Entrepreneurial Journeys monthly speaker series
  • “2 Minutes to Win It” Business Idea Contest.
  • Global Entrepreneurship Experience, in Belgium
  • Growing Entrepreneurs by Mentoring Students (GEMS).
