Community Centric Entrepreneurship Technical Assistance

Knox St. Studios is addressing the need for community based entrepreneurship education. Knox St. Studios has developed (in the heart of Durham, N.C. near historic Black Wall Street) a state of the art learning and innovation studio for entrepreneurs, underserved business professionals, and students to gain the requisite skills needed for the rapidly evolving local and national business marketplace.

This project was developed from empirical data collected through the founder (Talib Graves-Manns) work in economic development stemming from his work as an Entrepreneur in Residence with Code2040/Google for Startups, Black Wall Street Homecoming, and the Innovation & Entrepreneurship Center. The Triangle area of North Carolina is one of the nation’s leaders regarding collegiate education, technology jobs, and the most recent advances in entrepreneurship. However, there are still many systemic and structural impediments that affect the access and success factors for Black, Latino, and Women-led entrepreneurial success. Even though general entrepreneurial resources from local organizations (e.g. one-day workshops, community conversations, short-term programs) are available, there is a need to have year-around deep dive programs to serve our community. We fill that need. Knox St. Studios will be focused solely on curriculum development and deep-dive programs designed to impact the innovation economy specifically for the growing underserved populace of entrepreneurs.

Our studio provides the community with a permanent physical space, which offers emerging entrepreneurs the convenience of virtual programs.
