Join us on April 25 for our Professional Pathways event:
Alumni Startups in Charlotte

Elon University’s Charlotte Alumni Chapter presents “Alumni Startups in Charlotte”
at the Duke Mansion from 6 to 8 PM on Monday, April 25

The heart of this networking event is a panel discussion with local alumni professionals who represent just a small part of the booming startup community in the Charlotte area. At the event we'll hear their stories, the ups and downs, and the lessons learned along the way! The panel discussion will be followed by a Q&A session. Complimentary hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar will be provided to attendees.
