Video recordings from the day are available here!

Goals for 2020: 

  • Though we can’t host UNCG Entrepreneur Day in person for 2020, we still want to connect UNCG students, faculty, and staff with successful local entrepreneurs, leaders, and executives through this cornerstone event. We have scheduled an exciting group of 2020 Speakers, many of whom are UNCG alumni, to share their stories and provide exceptional advice to the UNCG community. 


  • Students – Receive exposure to new potential career paths, opportunities and connections
  • Faculty – An easy way to add a guest speaker with content relevant to courses
