After 6 years, we have decided to close Queen City Forward. We have loved being a part of the Charlotte community and thank each and every one of you for your generosity, participation, and enthusiasm. You have inspired us with your ideas and humbled us with your heart and hustle.

We did not arrive at this decision lightly. The board considered many options but ultimately determined that this was the best path forward. We were at a rare moment where existing obligations had been met and new ones had not yet begun, and I commend the Queen City Forward board for the leadership and courage necessary to seize the opportunity.

We continue to believe in the potential for entrepreneurs to change the world and eagerly anticipate the many ways in which you will continue to move the Queen City forward.
Thank you,
