"If you haven’t signed up yet, don’t miss this opportunity to get involved with local start-ups and entrepreneurs. 

Fuqua Planapalooza business plan review series gives you an opportunity to review business plans of North Carolina start-ups.  In conjunction with the CEI, EVCC, and NC IDEAyou choose what business you're interested in including: 
- Biotechnology & Medical Devices

- ... and a range of other industries and applications. 
The Fuqua Plananpalooza will take place on Wednesday, February 11 from 9 am -1 pm including an informal networking lunch with local entrepreneurs and some of the team at NC IDEA.  Additionally, we will host a VC Crash Course with Jeff Boardman of, next Tuesday (February 3) from 6:30-7:30 pm. 
Teams of students will be assigned a few business plans in their chosen industry area and asked to make recommendations on their viability.  This feedback will be the basis for anyone interested in working with the start-ups on later application rounds or possibly in a longer-term relationship with the entrepreneur.   
Please sign up by Sunday, Feb 1.
