ON THE MENU: GRANT-SEEKING 101

Before making a pie, you need to acquire ingredients and know where to find them. In a similar way, when you’re funding a nonprofit organization, you need to know what you’re trying fund and where you can source the funding to build your budget pie. This installment of On the Menu will demystify the general types of grantmaking organizations for nonprofits – what they are, how you access them, and what are the rules of engagement. After a brief presentation, attendees will have time for roundtable discussions for a deeper dive on these types of funding.

RTP Frontier’s very own Triangle Community Foundation will be bringing you the content for this session and Frontier RTP will be bringing in the lunch.

The Purple Goldfish is bringing together their expert faculty to revolutionize the way you approach Customer Experience, Brand Experience, and Employee Experience. By focusing on being experience design, companies and organizations can achieve greater results in 2019 and beyond.

In a world where commoditization is the norm, differentiation is key. The kind of differentiation customers and employees will notice doesn’t come from what you say, it comes more from what you do.

More than any other factor, your brand’s customer and employee experience will determine whether you thrive and profit or struggle and fade. There is a strong business case for winning the hearts of customers and employees, especially when it leads to increased retention and referrals. According to Gartner, a 5% increase in retention can boost profits by 25% to 125%.

The Think Outside The Bowl faculty includes brand experience, customer experience, employee experience and differentiation experts from the Purple Goldfish Think Tank.

BLACK ENTREPRENEURSHIP WEEK 2019

Game-changing innovations in business start with a vision. Black Entrepreneurship Week is about unlocking that potential through sharing knowledge.

Now heading into its third year, Black Entrepreneurship Week 2019 will bring together more than 1,000 people in Downtown Raleigh to focus on the future of of small business leadership in the black community and beyond. It will feature five days of inspiring speakers and engaging workshops.

Renowned civil rights attorney Ben Crump delivered the 2018 conference’s keynote address at Shaw University. Other sessions spotlighted women business owners, access to capital, tech, and non-profits. On the final day of the conference, aspiring entrepreneurs pitched their concepts before a panel of judges for an opportunity to be awarded up to $3,000 to bring their idea to fruition.

Black Entrepreneurship Week grew out of a partnership between Carolina Small Business Development Fund and Shaw University, a historically black institution, to create the Innovation & Entrepreneurship Center in Downtown Raleigh. Carolina Small Business is a nonprofit community lender that promotes economic development through outreach to underserved communities.

​In Southeast Raleigh, access to capital and other resources is a particular challenge marked by high levels of poverty. Comparatively,the area has a median income less than 80% of the city as a whole. The Innovation & Entrepreneurship Center works to foster entrepreneurship in this community through training, incubation and financial resources.

Carolina Small Business recognizes that the power of different perspectives within the entrepreneurial community adds value. From its attendees to featured speakers, BEW 2019 will again capitalize on the strength of diversity.

Those who are accomplished in business teach the strategy behind their success at Black Entrepreneurship Week. Carolina Small Business invites sponsors to be an essential part of this special, once-a-year conference.

INFORMING INNOVATION 2019

To bring a solution from bench to bedside, life science companies have myriad information needs at every stage of development. From market projections for specific therapeutic areas, to competitive intelligence about competitors’ research programs, to scientific literature, critical information can be expensive to access and time-consuming to search. Time spent hunting for information is time spent away from developing technologies that can heal and feed the world.

At Informing Innovation 2019, NC Biotech will help you get up to speed in life science market research techniques; learn the landscape of scientific literature, patent and business information resources; and equip you with sources and strategies for finding the data you need to innovate. You will also be able to connect with content providers to learn more about the industry tools and resources that are essential to discovery.

Informing Innovation 2019 is hosted by Life Science Intelligence (LSI) at NCBiotech. LSI specializes in the intersection of bioscience innovation and business. By delivering targeted market and scientific insight, LSI connects entrepreneurs and companies with the analysis and resources needed to inform strategic decisions.

Learn techniques to help you communicate a concept, create low-fidelity wireframes, user flows, prototypes and to work within a team. So bring your pencils, crayons, markers, paper, post-it notes and smartphone (if you have one) and let the fun begin.

PITCHBREAKFAST ASHEVILLE (SEPTEMBER 2019)

PitchBreakfast gives startups an opportunity to practice their investor pitch in a safe and supportive environment. Four companies will each pitch for 5 minutes followed by 10 minutes of Q&A and feedback from an expert panel.

Audience members will find value in hearing how other startups pitch, what types of feedback (both positive and negative) they receive, and of course, seeing some of Asheville’s up-and-coming startups while networking with other entrepreneurs and startup community leaders over breakfast (which is free!). The pitches begin at 9:15.

For startups looking to pitch, this is an amazing opportunity for:

  • Seed-stage and series A level tech startups looking to raise a round of funding
  • Early-stage tech startups looking for some feedback on their business model (must at least have MVP)
This is NOT for:

  • Entrepreneurs with just an idea and no development yet
  • “Lifestyle” companies (ex. bars/restaurants, crafts, hobbyists, MLMs) -“A lifestyle business is a business that is set up and run by its founders primarily with the aim of sustaining a particular level of income and no more; or to provide a foundation from which to enjoy a particular lifestyle.”
