Good afternoon,  

I am pleased to report that the OE team is currently partnering with Innovate Carolina in their initiative to launch Innovate Carolina Junction. OE’s role in the project aims to originate the process to efficiently and effectively guide Carolina in operating a world-class collaborative shared workspace. Innovate Carolina Junction will serve as the anchor for the Chapel Hill innovation district by providing a collaborative space for startups created at Carolina and in Chapel Hill to remain in the town, while simultaneously attracting industry to strengthen the local economy.  

The project supports Innovate Carolina by 1) developing a comprehensible operational guide, 2) clarifying roles and responsibilities as the team takes on this new venture, and 3) creating community guidelines to encourage a collaborative, diverse, and innovative space. For this work, we are utilizing a Transformation and Change Management Approach. 

This project is led by Transformation Manager Georgia McRae. Like all OE projects, this project relies on collaboration with campus partners. We appreciate the Innovate Carolina team for their synergy and we are especially thankful for Interim Executive Director of Innovate Carolina Jackie Quay, and Director of Economic Development and Innovation Hubs Sheryl Waddell for their leadership on this project.
