Charlotte Python Meetup Message Board › Startup Competition
New York, NY
Given our focus on business development, youth employment and start-ups in Charlotte, I wanted to reach out and introduce you to SHAPE Charlotte, a Business Idea Competition that will be hosted by the Charlotte Global Shapers this November.
The Business Idea Competition is focused on economic and job development in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg community.
We encourage eligible candidates between the ages of 18-30 to submit a viable business idea and its potential impact on the Charlotte community. Winning teams will receive seed funding and continued mentor support after the competition is over.
Though the finals for the competition won’t be held until November, we will be hosting an information session from 6:00PM-8:00 on September 25 at the UNCC Center City Auditorium.
We will have a keynote speaker and a panel of business leaders in the Charlotte community, who include:
David Jones—President & CEO, Peak 10
Igor Jablokov—CEO & Founder, Yap, Inc.
Deborah Aguiar-Velez—CEO, Sistemas, Corp.
Jason Ryan—Founder & CEO, Nova Office Strategies
Jacqueline Patterson—Principal, Sheercom LLC
Shafi Mustafa—Co-Founder & CEO, Savveo
We would love if you could attend the kick-off session.
