Charlotte Entrepreneurial Ecosystem Summit

May 18 @ 12:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Innovate Charlotte is hosting a half-day Ecosystem Summit on May 18th at EY’s wavespace in Southend. This event is open to key stakeholders in the innovation-based entrepreneurial ecosystem including founders, investors, entrepreneurial support organizations (ESOs), and other community leaders. We will be sharing updates on work started in the fall as well as new initiatives starting this year. It will be an opportunity for key members of the community to share ideas and find new ways for collaboration to move the Charlotte innovation ecosystem forward.


The agenda is being finalized, but will include lunch and networking at noon followed by some informational sessions until 4:30pm. The Summit will be followed by the Innovate Charlotte Happy Hour down the street at Tabbris (1300 South Blvd Unit D). Below are some of the topics that will be covered in the sessions.
