Recruiting C-Suite Talent to North Carolina Growth Companies

Wednesday March 1, 2017 • UNC Chapel Hill

An influential group of private sector leaders, university administrators, and government officials gathered at the Raleigh Convention Center on March 1st to craft actionable strategies to help the Research Triangle region attract and retain “C-Suite” talent to emerging high-growth companies in North Carolina. The invitation-only event, co-hosted by the Kenan Institute of Private Enterprise and the Council for Entrepreneurial Development, was structured as series of panel discussions followed by breakout strategy sessions designed to solicit specific actionable recommendations.

The impetus for the event was the realization among experts that the region – while impressive in many ways as an economic engine for the State – was underperforming relative to other regions in recruiting top tier talent to lead its area startups.
