Blue Innovation Community
This first-of-its-kind innovation-themed learning program offers access to a massive design space with creation tools and an open collaborative workspace.
BLUE inspires students to shape an innovative and collaborative residential community using physical and virtual tools to engage in self-discovery, build diverse connections, and accelerate ideas to reality.
Part of UNC-Chapel Hill’s early-stage venture ecosystem, BLUE resources include BeAM Maker workshops, UNC innovation speakers, career planning resources and faculty research reverse pitches. The community—which is open to students who have founded a startup or are just beginning their entrepreneurial journeys—brings together a growing community of entrepreneurs at UNC.
“UNC already has a vibrant entrepreneurial community. I believe that Blue Sky Innovation will grow the community and bring fresh innovative ideas."
