We are proud to be one of five first-round recipients of the Raleigh Impact Partners Grant administered by the city’s office of economic development. With this funding we will recruit 84 new business partners — 50 with underrepresented founders or leaders — to provide real problems for our students’ work. Through these partnerships, the next generation of talent will have an opportunity to see themselves -- regardless of race, gender, background, or geography -- in the diverse entrepreneurs that currently make up Raleigh’s innovation community.
