UNCW’s Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, or CIE, has unveiled the business sector’s answer to match-making. 

Anne Langan from Friends of the Library and Leslie Hossfeld from UNCW tell us about an upcoming visit from renowned folklorist Dr. William Ferris.  His free presentation at 2:00 on Saturday, April 26 at the Northeast Library is titled The Storied South: Voices of Writers and Artists.

It’s the thirty-second annual Business Week at UNCW’s Cameron School of Business--meaning dozens of prominent alumni and executives have descended upon the Port City, to share their knowledge of marketing, entrepreneurship and information technology. Each year, programming is tailored to reflect Cape Fear-specific business trends. And today’s trajectories point to “worthy cause marketing” and a rise in regional craft breweries and wine startups.

Dr. Leslie Hossfeld is Co-Founder and Executive Director of Feast Down East.  The 4th Annual Feast Down East Conference is Thursday from 8am to 4pm at UNCW’s Burney Center.
