What Is The CUBE?
The CUBE is UNC-Chapel Hill's hub for social innovation, housed at the Campus Y.
- The CUBE is a space for social entrepreneurs to put their ideas for solving the world’s greatest problems into practice. It is an experiential learning lab where young social entrepreneurs can test ideas, take risks, experience accountability, evaluate impact and incorporate feedback into their social enterprise. Housed at the Campus Y, the Center for Social Justice at UNC-Chapel Hill, teams have 24/7 access to a co-working space equipped with technology, equipment, furniture, and a kitchenette.
- The CUBE is a community, a nexus point where social innovators at Carolina can meet, interact with other social innovators, and learn from peers, all of whom are driven to create lasting positive social change. That community includes undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, staff and alumni across any discipline.
- And the CUBE is a one-stop shop for know-how. Social entrepreneurs across UNC-Chapel Hill can access seed capital opportunities, one-on-one mentoring, pro-bono support services, feedback from entrepreneurial experts, and capacity-building workshops covering everything from legal liability to effective marketing to entrepreneurial finance.
