1789 is the central hub of innovation at UNC, powered by Innovate Carolina. Designed for collaboration, 1789 offers co-working space where students, entrepreneurs, their teams, faculty, mentors, and clubs all come together to push beyond the edge of what others consider possible. 1789 is more than a single space. We believe creative ideas spring out of happenstance interactions. To ensure social ventures, non-profits, and for-profits alike can come to fruition, 1789 puts on a wide range of programs to bring UNC Chapel Hill’s entrepreneurial community together. But it’s not just those leading with new innovations who thrive at 1789. The first followers, the everyday dreamers, and passionate, hardworking students are the ones who make 1789 such a vibrant community. So welcome. We’re excited to have you.
