our mission: to help you build a scalable company.

Fellows will receive mentorship and guidance from their Fellowship Sponsoring Partner. These Sponsoring Partners are all seasoned entrepreneurs themselves. Each Fellow will get customized feedback sessions with diverse groups of experts tailored to specific issues his or her venture or initiative is facing.

Fellows will receive support from a peer advisory board with monthly meetings as well as leadership training and development including a weekend retreat. Additionally, Fellows have access to resource providers and professional development at HQ Raleigh and at the three major Triangle universities.

During the 9-month program, Fellows will build a diverse network of connections in the Triangle and nationally. Membership at HQ Raleigh, a local entrepreneurial workspace, will enhance these connections, as will community outreach and media exposure.
