Nussbaum entrepreneurship center seeks big ideas: What should they do with this huge old steel mill?

Wide-angle view of the former Carolina Steel plantThe Nussbaum Center for Entrepreneurship is North Carolina’s biggest incubator for start-up businesses. They’ve helped a lot of entrepreneurs get on to good starts.

The center has been given a gigantic gift — the former Carolina Steel plant at 1431 South Elm-Eugene Street, not far from campus.  They’re looking for ideas about what to do with it, and if you have one (or more), they want to hear it. The center will hold three “visionary” meetings:

  • Wednesday April 23, 2:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
  • Wednesday April 23, 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
  • Saturday April 26, 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

The sessions will be held at the center’s office, 1451 South Elm-Eugene, adjacent to the former mill, now known as the Steelhouse Property. Each session will include a brief tour of the plant and a structured brainstorming session to solicit as many ideas as possible for uses of the property.
