Carolina KickStart is able to mine a rich network of entrepreneurs, thinkers and investors to help startup companies fill the talent gap. We help companies connect to senior management, consultants, field experts, business development professionals and more.

The Research Triangle Park region has a number of talented entrepreneurs. Many of these entrepreneurs would like to be involved in university startups but don’t have a way to connect with the startups. Carolina KickStart provides a number of formal and informal ways to bring talent to UNC Startups including:

  • Emerging Company Showcase - Each year, Carolina KickStart, along with KFBS and OTD, organize a showcase for early stage companies emerging from the University. The showcase attracts hundreds of local entrepreneurs, investors, and service providers to hear company presentations and meet with founders.

  • Informal Network - Carolina KickStart maintains a rich network of entrepreneurs and investors which they use for introducing startup opportunities.
