Community Empowerment

CEF was one of the first student ventures to occupy space in my office on Franklin Street in Chapel Hill. They, along with Sweeps, U-Connection, ABAN, and Carpe, were some of the first companies to launch successful ventures out of these offices and our space just down the street at 1789.

I am so proud of Community Empowerment as they have done, and are continuing to do, incredible things to serve the most vulnerable citizens in our community. Serving roughly 1,000 people every year – I’m so proud of them, how much they’ve grown and the impact they’re having in our communities.

Community Empowerment Fund (CEF) is another incredible former UNC student-conceived venture which started in my office on Franklin Street.
