City Startup Labs, Inc.
Charlotte

Fall | City Startup Labs offers returning citizens (formerly incarcerated) in Charlotte the opportunity to develop and exercise their entrepreneurial capabilities with a new initiative through its Center of Excellence — the ReEntry Entrepreneurship Program (REEP) is designed to guide the participants through the process of researching, planning, and launching impactful and scalable enterprises.

Spring | The Center of Excellence (CoE) process equips participants with an entrepreneurial mindset, attitude, and aptitude for success. In addition to teaching entrepreneurship, the CoE provides an intrapreneurial track, designed to deliver innovation, problem-solving, and leadership to corporate Charlotte and beyond. Further, in partnership with UNC Charlotte’s Urban Education Collaborative, the CoE will research the effect that this education can have on young black men, regarding addressing the wealth disparities present in Charlotte today.
