A new program for college students in Greensboro who are interested in starting their own businesses, Growing Entrepreneurs by Mentoring Students (GEMS), is being started by the North Carolina Entrepreneurship Center (NCEC) at UNCG.
Through a competitive application process, top entrepreneurial students will be selected to be matched one-on-one with experienced entrepreneurs who will serve as mentors. The inaugural class of up to 20 students will be selected this spring and the pilot program starts this fall, to run throughout the 2012-2013 academic year. The application deadline is Friday, April 13, 2012, and applications may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. More information can be found at http://entrepreneur.uncg.edu.
