As a group that believes the growth of entrepreneurship in the Charlotte Region is critical to our long-term success, the Wed3 board believes Ignite Charlotte helps foster that growth by bringing together dynamic and passionate members within the start-up community. They see this dynamic event as a place where ideas and people meet. And they wanted to be part of it.
Wed3, Inc. is an angel investor-networking group based out of the Ben Craig Center, near the campus of UNC Charlotte. The group partners with mostly seed and early stage investments and is committed to making Charlotte a vibrant city for entrepreneurial opportunity.
Wed3 is excited about the formation of the Charlotte Entrepreneurial Alliance which helps coordinate community resources for entrepreneurs. They have also been impressed by the focus the mayor, city council and Charlotte Chamber of Commerce have put on small businesses. They believe a recent trip by a number of Charlotte business leaders to the White House to discuss economic development was a sign of the potential Charlotte has to offer.
We are proud and appreciative of Wed3’s support of Charlotteans with a dream and Ignite Charlotte 4.
