I am an Inventor / Researcher


Researchers and inventors from academic programs change our lives with unique products and services.  However, having a new discovery on its own doesn’t get you very far.  Ventureprise helps researchers affiliated with UNC Charlotte to fully develop their ideas or inventions, and turn them into a marketable product. How do we do this?  By supporting and connecting researchers to the formal commercialization process, including patents, prototyping, market analysis, business plan development and funding partners needed to lead an innovator from idea to sustainable business.
