What Is Queen City Forward?

Entrepreneurs are creative, gutsy and forward thinking, and with all the tough challenges facing us right now, we need innovative, entrepreneurial ideas to meet our ever-growing societal demands. Queen City Forward provides a hub for entrepreneurs who have business ideas that address social needs and work to balance a triple-bottom-line of people, planet and profit.  We encourage, enable and scale these social enterprises to create a robust cluster of innovation in the Charlotte region.

Our Mission is to unleash the potential of high-growth, high impact social entrepreneurs in Charlotte to create sustained economic and social impact that spurs economic development, improves the lives of citizens, and drives a new model of sustainable growth.

We are located uptown at 222 S. Church St., Suite 100, Charlotte, NC 28202
