What we're about


Coming off of a 2-year pilot designed for young black men, City Startup Labs (CSL) (http://citystartuplabs.com/) has established a Center of Excellence for Entrepreneurial Competency, Innovation and Leadership (CoE) at UNCC. The CoE will continue to deliver on the CSL mission to provide entrepreneurial and intrapreneurial training targeted to black male millennials (18-34 yrs).


While the Center of Excellence is a principle focus for us, CSL is more than that — in the coming months, we'll be taking an imaginative look at the intersection of innovation, design, and creativity from new voices to new ventures. So stay tuned!

City Startup Labs is creating a new class of entrepreneurs, innovators, problem-solvers, leaders and visionaries.
