Past Events

  • Thursday, September 18th
    Lori Collins – Executive Director, CLT Joules


    With a good mix of Senior Section Members and Students from the Student Section of UNCC Lori Collins talked about CLT Joules, (the term is a unit of energy) Charlotte’s nursery for energy entrepreneurs. A material that harvests heat and motion to recharge your phone. A light bulb that stays on during power outages. Or “bio-coal” made of organic wastes. The “energy accelerator” connects innovators looking for their first customer, and capital, to established companies prospecting for new ideas.

    Mark Delgado – C.E.O. at Koyr Engineering


    Mark Delgado wrote computer programs. As a sophomore nuclear engineering student at N.C. State University, he built a radiation detector called an ionization chamber in his dorm room. And as a 2013 graduate, he turned down a couple of six-figure job offers to become an entrepreneur. At 25, Delgado is CEO of Koyr Engineering, a nuclear-industry startup that makes radiation detectors that work with smartphones. Koyr also sells software that improves efficiency by automating labor and improving work flow.
