Application Deadline in 4 Days, Apply By 5PM on 10/9!


The objective is to help participants in eight weeks (four sessions) decide if their idea is solid enough so that they can quit their day job to pursue it, or figure out that it is not. NC IDEA LABS Lite meets every other week for eight weeks. If you know an entrepreneur who would be a good fit for this program, please forward this email to them. The Fall Session of NC IDEA LABS Lite will meet from 11:30am to 1:00pmon the American Tobacco Campus in downtown Durham on October 16th, October 30th, November 13th and December 4th.
