The UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School Leads the Way in Entrepreneurship

Ted Zoller, Director of The Entrepreneurship Center at UNC’s Kenan-Flagler Business School, was recently featured on Poets&Quants, a leading online publication covering graduate business education, to comment on the school’s leadership in entrepreneurship. Here’s a snippet of what he had to share:

I’m not disparaging my friends at Duke or NC State, but we clearly are the leader.”

“What makes a great entrepreneurship ecosystem is building up the social capital and the leadership that can extract these innovations and turn them into businesses,” Zoller says. “Right now in Research Triangle, that culture is completely embedded. It’s just in the water. We’re just like Austin.” (Read more on Poets&Quants).
