HQ Community and Carolina Small Business Development Fund (CSBDF) are partnering to offer veteran-owned small businesses in the Triangle, Triad and Charlotte with affordable workspaces and innovative services to scale their business.
This unique joint veteran initiative offers veteran entrepreneurs with a membership to the HQ Community with locations in Raleigh, Charlotte and Greensboro. This includes free co-working space in any HQ Community’ s offices, access to HQ member benefits, support through HQ Labs, and more. Veteran entrepreneurs will also have the opportunity to gain visibility among the HQ Community through newsletters, signage, and events while expanding their networks and being in an ecosystem that encourages innovation and creativity
HQ Labs Explorer Edition is designed for people who are currently employed but have been bitten by the entrepreneurial bug. Held on four consecutive Saturdays, the program will help potential entrepreneurs see if they have the “right stuff” to take the plunge and start a business. This program is an abbreviated version of the full HQ Labs program, designed to get at the basics of starting a business and leading a team of people.
