Ventureprise Is Open For Business at PORTAL
February 04, 2014 at 9:36 AM
Ventureprise and former Ben Craig Center clients moved this past Saturday to PORTAL, which is located on the UNC Charlotte Campus.
We are excited and privileged to be here, with a look forward to providing more value to our clients in this new work-space and environment that already cultivates a whole new, creative energy flow on its own.
This photo is taken from the Ventureprise suite of offices, capturing the main lobby, located on PORTAL Building second floor.
Ventureprise clients are located on the second and third floor of PORTAL, with the first floor mostly dedicated to a SCIF, or Secure Compartmentalized Information Facility. The fourth floor is dedicated to Charlotte Research Institute partners - large corporate innovation teams and/or companies that work with university researchers/conduct workforce development for students.
Please stay tuned to Ventureprise hosting of upcoming Charlotte-based events for:
- Code for America Brigade
- CRTEC Monthly Meeting
- BIG Council Events
Also, engage with Ventureprise initiatives aimed at helping entrepreneurs accelerate their growth:
