North Carolina’s Entrepreneur Technical Assistance Program
ELGL is excited to announce a webinar about an innovative new program coming out of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The Entrepreneur Technical Assistance Program or E-TAP is an effort to link experienced MBA students with promising small businesses in rural North Carolina. By matching the skills of experienced MBA students to the specific needs of qualifying businesses, the program hopes to spur economic development in economically distressed rural areas throughout the state. See some examples of the work they have done here. So join us on Thursday June 26, at 12:00 to 1:00 pm (EST) for this exciting learning opportunity!
