Charlotte Could Be Next City For Founder’s Institute

Founder’s Institute, the largest startup accelerator in the world, is looking for their next new location. Founder’s Institute has had success in the valley, Boulder, Los Angeles, Seattle, Washington DC and other major cities around the country.

Now, Founder’s Institute is testing the waters in Charlotte North Carolina.

Once a conservative banking center, Charlotte has become a major hub for innovation Amon cities in the south east.

Charlotte played host to the Democratic National Convention this summer, and with that they give entrepreneurs, entrepreneurial media and more a glimpse into their growing startup scene. On our trip there for the convention we got to work out of Packard Place, a 4 story building in Charlotte’s Uptown (what they call their downtown) that serves as the hub for innovation.

Founder’s Institute has opened up discussion about coming to Charlotte on their website here.

Founder’s Institute also plans to test the waters by hosting a handful of events in Charlottte, over the next month:

Startup Pitch Bootcamp Wednesday November 28th

Founder’s Institute Info Session Wednesday December 5th

Startup Ideation Bootcamp Wednesday December 12th
