Concierge Service for Entrepreneurs


The Kenan Institute of Private Enterprise has developed a new program, the Concierge Service for Entrepreneurs, to support UNC’s initiatives in university technology commercialization and entrepreneurship. One program developed through this initiative is the Startup Consulting program. The program actively engages MBA student teams to provide consulting services to UNC-affiliated startup companies that are developing cutting-edge research into high-impact products and services.

Startup Consulting teams provide:

  • financial and business modeling:
  • in-depth customer/market evaluation
  • competitive analysis
  • pitch deck preparation
  • go-to-market strategy

Startup Consulting teams have the opportunity to:

  • actively work with university startup companies and/or participate in the commercialization planning that will lead to new startup creation
  • further strengthen their network by working closely with the Kenan Institute team, strategic advisors, members of the business community, and other experts throughout the regional innovation ecosystem
  • be eligible for independent study credit after completion of a Startup Consulting project

Concierge Service for Entrepreneurs

Helping innovators and entrepreneurs solve economic, technological, and biomedical engineering challenges, to convert research into solutions for better health, a more vibrant economy, and a sustainable environment.
