UNC Chapel Hill’s plans for an entrepreneurial boot camp in July has received a $300,000 grant from the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation.

The three-day camp, which is in July, is for junior faculty interested in researching minority and entrepreneurship by women.

“The goal of the boot camp is to foster the professional growth of the next generation of talented scholars who will advance the knowledge of minority and women’s entrepreneurship through cutting-edge research,” said Dr. James Johnson Jr., director of the Kenan Institute of Private Enterprise’s Urban Investment Strategies Center.
The Kauffman Foundation has already provided a $3.5 million grant to UNC in December to launch the Carolina Entrepreneurial Initiative (CEI).

The camp will include 10 different sessions and scholars in minority and women’s entrepreneurship.
