All majors are encouraged to attend and learn more about working on exciting and innovative projects. Startup Connect funding is available for some summer 2023 internships.
Are you interested in innovation or have an idea? The first step is joining our community.

Systems thinking encourages big picture perspectives and benefits researchers, entrepreneurs and professionals. Learn how you can win a chance to represent UNC at the global finals at the University of Oxford, summer 2023.
Did you know farming can be therapeutic? Or that a growing business based in Durham is working to end food waste? Have you heard of a UNC- based startup that is making sure people have access to healthy foods, even in a “food deserts?” Learn about all the ways food and farming are making a difference in the community here and throughout North Carolina. Hear from a panel of farmers and food-related business owners as they discuss how what we eat makes a broader impact.
