SIIRs – Shuford’s Innovators-in-Residence
Diverse Entrepreneurial Expertise & Experiences
The inaugural Shuford Innovator-in-Residence Program brought together a cohort of industry subject-matter experts with an intentional focus on diversity of personal and professional backgrounds, experiences, and identities.
These leaders in innovation — all Carolina alumni — support students in the Shuford Program in Entrepreneurship through academic lectures, professional development initiatives, mentoring opportunities, and candid conversations across campus. Each innovator visits campus for one week per academic year to build connections and then networks with the University and Shuford to continue to build community beyond that week.
Additionally, each SIIR receives $4,000 stipend along with $1,000 in support for travel to and housing during their time on campus. Click here to read more.
