Goals for 2021: 

  • Although we aren’t hosting UNCG Entrepreneur Day in person for 2021, 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  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
