2019 NorthState Tech Lab Application. Deadline is September 6.
What is the NorthState Tech Lab at HQ Greensboro?
In Fall 2018, NorthState and HQ Greensboro joined forces to create the NorthState Tech Lab—a six-week, no cost bootcamp for selected companies to who are poised to move beyond the startup phase.

This Fall, North StateTech Lab is piloting a sector-based, "like-minds" approach so each cohort can dive more deeply and better leverage peer knowledge, relationships and expertise in a shorter time frame. The Fall 2019 cohort is focused on the social entrepreneur sector -- changemakers who intentionally build their for-profit business to create positive social impact.

We're looking for Changemakers!
The Fall 2019 NorthState Tech Lab is looking for applicants who are changemakers- entrepreneurs who apply their unique passion and mindset to solving problems that challenge our society and community to make an even greater impact.

We have selected faculty, coaches and session leaders from a community of social enterprise entrepreneurs and experts

If you would like to learn more about the program please and whether it's for you, email monica@monicadoss.com to set up a call or meeting.
