What We Do

City Startup Labs (CSL) is now offering returning citizens in Charlotte, NC the opportunity to develop and exercise their entrepreneurial capabilities with an initiative through its Center of Excellence - the ReEntry Entrepreneurship Program (REEP). This project is designed to help participants develop the entrepreneurial mindset, attitude, and aptitude for success through three phases. Participants will LEARN exciting new skills in digital technology software and equipment + entrepreneurship; EARN the chance to get on-the-job training as an apprentice; and pursue BUILDing a self-employed gig, a startup, or a 21st Century tech career.

CSL is seeking persons interested in working either as mentors or business coaches with individuals and teams. REEP will run for six months, from April through the end of September 2020. Mentors will work with the participants throughout that period and coaches will be brought onboard later on - when the program reaches the final phases of the program. There is not a specific location where you will conduct your mentoring or coaching, but we are looking for folks located in or near Charlotte only. We will require that you meet face to face with your charge at least once per month.

Interesting Info

Since our inception in 2014, 66 entrepreneurs have graduated from our program.
There are about 14,000 black owned-businesses in Charlotte and 2.6 million nationwide.
We want to spread the City Startup Labs program to other cities across the US!
