RESEARCH PROJECTS

Exciting new research is being conducted in the realms of agriculture and agri-tourism, health and wellness, oil and gas, and manufacturing by our partners at UNC and CSU. One example of a research project is from UNC, where professors and students were able to create a custom cash flow analysis model tool. This tool enabled the company to better project cash flow and utilize funds appropriately, which ultimately allows for a healthier growth rate for the company. The BizHub's partners are continually looking into new research projects. If there is a particular project that a BizHub client believes would benefit from further research, the BizHub will working with those partners to see if there is any relevant current research that can be shared or if a professor is interested in conducting that research on the client's behalf.
