UNC Kenan-Flagler’s Entrepreneurship Center Expands Collaboration with Opportunity Hub (OHUB) and 100 Black Angels & Allies Fund With Faculty Participation From Stanford Technology Ventures Program and Duke Innovation & Entrepreneurship Initiative

Tuesday June 1, 2021

UNC Kenan-Flagler’s Entrepreneurship (Eship) Center today announced that affiliated faculty at the Stanford Technology Ventures Program (STVP) and the Duke Innovation & Entrepreneurship Initiative (Duke I&E) are participating with the Eship Center, Opportunity Hub (OHUB) and 100 Black Angels & Allies Fund to create more diverse, equitable and inclusive entrepreneurial ecosystems. The goal of this collaboration and engagement from multiple institutions is to address issues like DEI at a systemic organizational level and to create more equitable ecosystems through the delivery of education, best practices and actionable frameworks.

As part of the effort, STVP-affiliated faculty and Duke I&E will engage with the DEIS Practicum Certificate and Black Technology Ecosystem Investment Certificate, which will be delivered through the Eship Center’s Scale School starting in August 2021. These new collaborations build on the Eship Center’s commitment to promoting diversity, equity and inclusion throughout the entrepreneurial ecosystem.
