Tuesday, February 23, 2021

Ventureprise is sponsoring 49er Impact, a virtual pitch competition for all UNC Charlotte students, on March 30.

49er Impact provides students an opportunity to win cash and mentorship for their ideas. Virtual workshops will be held on two different days: Students who have a business idea, should register for “Pivot Your Idea” on Thursday, March 18; students interested in social issues should select the “Chance for Change workshop,” scheduled for March 19. 

All students will compete on Tuesday, March 30, in their respective categories. An overall winner will be chosen along with up to five teams from each category to participate in the student portion of Charlotte Venture Challenge on April 20, where five teams will receive $1,500 and a summer mentorship.
