08 Sep News & Observer Feature: Fuquay-Varina Innovation Project Launches for Entrepreneurs
A new program aims to connect budding entrepreneurs of all ages with established professionals in areas such as accounting, graphic design, web design, law, marketing and consulting.
InnovateFV, hosted by the Fuquay-Varina Chamber of Commerce, kicked off in late August. It will hold regular meetings for participants, with speakers and networking sessions, until culminating with a weekend-long event in January.
James Wong, a marketing and IT professional who also runs the Fuquay Coworking space, is heading up InnovateFV.
Whether someone has a dream of building a mobile app, opening a cupcake shop or starting a new charity, he or she can bring that idea through InnovateFV.
Organizers are hoping to attract 100 to 150 entrepreneurs, business professionals, mentors and other interested participants. The program is open to non-residents, though organizers hope to find ideas that will benefit the local area.
