PORTAL Accelerator Space is Designed for Innovation Companies


The Ventureprise accelerator, located in the Charlotte Research Institute’s PORTAL building on the campus of UNC Charlotte, offers startup and growth-stage companies an affordable space where they can share ideas and insights, trust and expertise, markets and strategies, networks and connections.


PORTAL is a newly constructed building offering Ventureprise clients configurable space, ranging from single offices to 4,000 square foot suites. Clients benefit from fully furnished facilities plus turnkey services and access to university resources such as the research library, lab space and other campus resources. But Ventureprise at PORTAL is much more than a building. It is a place where access to other innovators and a host of growth and education opportunities can ignite entrepreneurial businesses.
